Topic: Batch Processing Page Extraction

Here is the situation:

I have in a Quarter 650 financial Industry Reports that I produce and pdf in word, the problem now is my landing pages which market my reports needs a preview of the contents pages eg: pages 3-7.

The solution thus fare is to Batch process all these documents as I don't have time to extract every reports pages manually, the problem is I don't know how, there is a page extraction sequence but it has an involved javascript, I don't know Java, the other solution I thought of was deleting pages one and two in the batch process then deleting from 8 to end of the document, problem being now is you need the exact page count of the document, is there a way for acrobat to find the last page and delete until that page? and if I set this out as a 2 step sequence it only runs the first, meaning even if I get this last page count right I would have to run 2 seperate batches to get to my final result, there has to be a simple way to do this?
