Hi all

 

Am new to using this Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

We find the splitting of documents features very useful, we also use a HR software which allows for bulk uploading of documents. 

As far as i am aware, the split function only allows for basic labelling of the split documents. Is there a way that when a document is split, that the split can rename the split documents according to specific infomation within the document?

 

So for example, we recieve a single PDF document from our accountants which has each staff member on each individual page in that document, as we have over 100 staff, this document is relatively lengthly with 1 staff member per page. So being able to auto name the split documents to each persons name and then being able to use the HR software bulk uploader to match the documents filename to the staff name on the system?

thanks
Ashley

As you've discovered, Acrobat's Split feature (although powerful) has limited options for naming the files that it creates from the split operation. If this could be done, it would be via JavaScript. You may want to repost this in the Acrobat Scripting forum to see if someone can help you with that.

There is no "Acrobat Scripting forum" any longer, unfortunately...

If the information to use for the names of the files is consistent (and readable) then it can probably be achieved using a custom-made script, as mentioned. I've developed many similar tools in the past and would be happy to create one for you too, for a small fee. You can contact me via [try6767 at gmail.com] to discuss it further.
