I have two related pdf files I need to append together into one pdf file to be accessed from my web site. How do I go about doing this?
Adobe Acrobat Reader cannot do this. You wold need either one of the Cloud or an Acrobat subscription.
How do you append using Acrobat subscription?
What I don't like about this method using Combine is that it creates a second PDF if I already have an original PDF.
I did find a way to "Append" an Outlook email to Adobe Pro.
This is helpful, but only works with appending Outlook emails to existing PDF documents, but it doesn't work with other applications, such as printing reports from QB and appending them to an existing PDF document. PDF Exchange Editor had this feature, and I am surprised to find that I can't find this feature in such a robust software as Adobe Subscription.
I also found a way to merge two PDF files together without saving as another document, but it still doesn't solve the age-old issue of how to print a file from another software and simply append it to an existing PDF. At the moment, it appears we are stuck creating several documents and appending those together.
Insert one PDF into another (without creating another document in the process)
The directions for that method are also in the link I gave you.
I see, though, that it's missing my favorite method: open the Pages panel in both documents and drag-and-drop pages from one PDF to the other. This works similar to PowerPoint slides, if you use that.
Jane-e, is there really no print driver for Adobe with subscription? Seems like for such an expensive program, it should come with a print driver that we can use to print and append QB reports (or printing from other external software and appending to an existing Adobe PDF document).
There is, but only on Windows, due to limitations imposed by Apple on virtual printers.
That's great! Do you know any where I can find more information on that? I am hoping a print driver will allow me to print reports from QB to Adobe PDF, and append them to each other.
If you have Acrobat on a Windows machine it will be installed automatically alongside the application.

With a paid subscription to Adobe Acrobat (not the Reader where you posted), this is what you see in the Print menu.
In addition, Microsoft 365 documents have an Acrobat group on the Ribbon.
Click it to get this and create an Adobe PDF (you need to then save it).
When you look in File > Properties, you will see it is an Adobe PDF and not a macOS (Quartz) PDF.
You can get a free trial of Adobe Acrobat to see if it works for you. Be sure to cancel if it doesn't.
