- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 3 months agoSalve, ho utilizzato i vostri preziosi suggerimenti e sono riuscito facilmente a generare i file singoli in pdf partendo da un file word di stampa unione. Vorrei chiedere se è possibile nominare i singoli file pdf, al posto del numero di pagina, con un nome specifico di un campo contenuto nel file di excel che ho utilizzato per stampa unione. Sarebbe il massimo. Grazie mille
