Guys, I am using Digital Action (Planet Press Watch 7.x) to generate PDFs. Sometimes BLANK PDFs are generated due to insufficient data coming in. How can validate the BLANK PDFs and send the BLANK and GOOD PDFs to a separate folders ? Please help.

Easiest way may be to extract some text from the PDF page from a certain region where missing text indicates a blank page. This could be done by taking the pdf as a new data file (Change Emulation to PDF) and then using a data selection to extract text in a Text Condition plugin to check for an empty string.
