Dear all,

I would like to setup a workflow to route the pdf to different printer, determinate by the total page number of each pdf.

i.e.
there are two pdf files - pdf1 ( contain 5 pages) & pdf2 (caontain 10 pages)
&
2 printers - P1 & P2

then condition is all file which equal or below 5 pages will print at P1,
and the file which contains more than 6 pages will be print at P2.

I have try to set up the "Condition Text" with pdfpagecount(&current.datafilename), but it seems not work.

How can i do it properly.

Thanks.

Hi Alvin:

Use the Create Metadata action to get the number of page in the pdf. You can then create a condition based on the metadata field value to redirect the file to the appropriate printer.

Hope this helps,
