Hello,

I was wondering if there was a way to have it pull the name for the PDF from the word doc. Example: instead of Page_01, have a pull an account number that was the 3rd line down in the word document?

Like saving each document with a different name, not just Page_1.pdf and so on.

Hi Camila,
The following VBA code can help you solve the problem.
Note: You need to specify a different name in this line: xFileName = "AA; BB; CC; DD". Here AA, BB and CC are the names for the PDF files.
Please change them to meet your needs. You can add more names and separate them by semicolon. To mention that the number of names specified must match the number of pages you expored. And the PDF files will be named in order of the specified names in the code.

Добрый день!
Есть ли возможность сохранить из ворд файла(используя слияние) в пдф файл - Решения собственников на общее собрание.
При этом учитываем, что PDF должен сохраняться так: в 1 файле должно быть несколько листов (1 квартира), по данному модулю страницы сохраняются в пдф, но раздельно

Hi,
Sorry I don't understand what you mean. You may need to attach a screenshot or a sample file to describe the problem you encountered more clearly.
