Hi I receive one PDF that may contain 300 statement
I need to read the pdf and merge the PDF with a form

This part is currently working,

The problem is we sent the PDF that will fold the statement and the machine doesn't accept PDF who have more than 8 pages.

So I need to split Each PDF Created into different PDF's that will be saved into a folder.

Then another process will search if it found PAGE:9 in the document if yes it will send it to a different printer if PAGE:9 doesn't exist I will print to the printer who does the folding

My question is HOW to achieve that and what is the best approach.

Hi Alain,

When you capture your pdf files, you can make a simple Text Condition to look for "PAGE:9" in a specific region, and you can choose "Any Page" to look at all the pages of the pdf. This means that the condition will be true if it finds PAGE:9 anywhere within the pdf, otherwise, it will be false. You can then have a different printer queue in each of the True and False branches of that condition, to send to the correct printer.
