Hi guys, I need help! 🙂

I have a PDF file and want to create a hundred copies of it, each with a different header (I have xls file with the list of headers I'll be using):

"Copy number 001. File prepared for Adam."

"Copy number 002. File prepared for Mark."

and so on.

 

Is there any way to automate such an operation? I am using Acrobat DC (21.001.20145)

"001_Filename_Adam.pdf"
"002_Filename_Mark.pdf"

I've created a (paid-for) tool for Acrobat that allows you to do just that:

Thanks for the offer, but was looking for free solution. I've found JavaScript sample but could not get it working...

If I understand correctly you are looking for a free ready-to-use script.

Do you also need free technical support?

Yes, you are right Sir. From a Adobe Support Community I hoped for a free advice/help...

For paid solutions I would pick any top10 result from google search, there are plenty.

 

I've found this solution but could not get it working (JS creates only first copy and then stops):

We're happy to give you pointers and help you learn how to do it, if you're interested in doing that, but if you want someone to do it for you you'll probably need to pay for it. Adobe Support does not cover this kind of stuff at all, and this is mostly a user-to-user forum, with almost all volunteer participants.

Hi,

 

If you have a script that is not working, you can post some information about what is not working and which script you are using, then we may be able to help you. Atlthough most of what we would be providing is just guidance.
