Is it possible to have it itemize instead of group these page numbers. For example if PDF 1 has 3 pages and PDF 2 has 2 pages, how do i get it to look like this?

File Name Page
PDF 1 1
PDF 1 2
PDF 1 3
PDF 2 1
PDF 2 2

This is so amazing and helpful. Is there a way to run this in a folder that has several subfolders and do all the files at once instead of having to run it for each folder?

Buenas. Me funciona perfecto. Ahora lo que necesitaría es imprimir unas paginas en concreto y llamo a esta rutina pero no imprime el pdf sino el excel.
Sub imprimirpdf()
Dim rutaPDF As String
rutaPDF = Sheets("Hoja1").Range("D2")
F = Cells(2, 7)
T = Cells(2, 8)
pid = Shell("C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat DC\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe " & Chr(34) & rutaPDF & Chr(34))
ActiveSheet.PrintOut From:=F, To:=T
DoEvents 'Paso 5 - Esperar que se Imprima el PDF
hnd = OpenProcess(PROCESS_TERMINATE, True, pid) 'Paso 6 - Obtener el handle(manejador) del proceso(Adobe Reader)
TerminateProcess hnd, 0 '
End Sub

Hallo vielen Dank f√ľr den Code und die super Erkl√§rung
Ich habe nun das Problem das meine PDF-Dateien zwei unterschiedliche Seitengröße (A4 und A6) inne haben.
Nun w√ľrde ich gerne Pro PDF diese unterschied zus√§tzlich auslesen k√∂nnen.
Habe Sie hierf√ľr vielleicht eine L√∂sung.

Gerne können sie mich auch unter email: erreichen.

MFG,
Sebastian
