Hi -

Does anyone know how to use VBA (in Microsoft Access) to create a single PDF file by combining a collection of different file types (.docx, .pdf, .pptx, .jpg, .xlsx, etc)?  Basically I want to loop through a windows 7 directory and create a PDF file of everything in it.  I can do it manually right now by just selecting them all and right-clicking to use the menu option, but it sure would be nice to automate.

Thank you for any help -

Dan

Have you thought about using an Acrobat Action? or the Portfolio tools? 

But if you want to do it with VBA, then read this part of the Acrobat SDK manual in the IAC:

Acrobat DC SDK Documentation
