PDF Name--1st part static, 2nd part unique

I posted this on the Acrobat board, too. I'm creating 200+ certificates in INDD. I'm importing a CSV list to populate the names. I need to save each PDF separately with a unique name: "Company 2024 Blank Certificate Person's Name". So the only thing changing over 200 times is the person's name. Is there a way to easily do this? Right now it's only saving each person's individual name not the static part "Company 2024 Blank Certificate." Thank you.

I'd export the PDF as a single 200 page PDF file. Open the PDF in Acrobat Pro, choose Organize Pages > Extract Pages, tick Extract pages as separate files, then the Extract button. That'll give you 200 individual PDF files. Then use Advanced Renamer, https://www.advancedrenamer.com/, to load the CSV file, and run a batch that renames the 200 files with the CSV data.
Reckon this is the sort of task that has many solutions, someone else might well have a more elegant solution.

Yeah, there are a few different ways to skin the cat. 

 

Another one - similar to yours - using Excel to create .BAT file.
