Conf: (P-PDF) What's Wrong with my PDF?, Msg: 158304

I want to use the Acrobat 8 feature of combining two PDF files to include a standardized PDF instruction page at the end of some documents intended to be emailed. On that instruction page I want to include a button that takes the user back to page one of the combined document, which may include any number of pages.

Acrobat is so "intelligent" that when I combine the instruction page to the larger PDF document and place it at the end, the button I've placed on the standardized instruction sheet changes to point to itself, rather than the first page of the document.

In other words, if I place the instruction sheet at the end of a four page document, the button is changed to point to page 5 rather than page 1.

Is there, mayhap, some Javascript that I could attach to that button making it always go to page one of whatever document it happens to find itself, code that Acrobat won't so kindly and "intellegently" convert for me?

Thank you.
