Why would you want to do it using a button? Also, where in the file do you want to insert the new pages?

And are you aware this won't work if used outside of Acrobat?

Hi , i am aware yes, i have the 1st page with user information on it, things like, name, address, passport details, driving license etc etc. The fields on this 1st page are then put into various letters, contracts, licenses and forms further on in the document, Acrobat forms is extremely useful for this kind of repitition. It saves hours and saves on making mistakes!

The Button will be to add in a 9 page pre filled PDF document (with different details for different users) into a specific location later in the document. 

Kind Regards
