Does anyone know how I might use an action in adobe pro to add a document specific footer (ie a reference number) to a folder of documents - based on an index (xls or CSV). So CSV could have filename and then reference and action would look at this to find the reference and then add it as a footer to the document, then move to the next document and repeat.
Any thoughts - or other ways to achieve this would be welcome!
Yes, this functionality can be scripted. But it's not trivial.
AFAIK ther is no off the shelf solution for this. Contact me if you are interested in paying for a custom solution. Message me from this forum, or an use the contact info at www.pdfscripting.com
Many thanks for your response.
Unfortunately I don't have budget for a custom solution - but I have found a workaround by batch renaming the PDFs to the reference number and then using the publicly available "file name stamper" action. Not perfect but will do!
