Topic: Batch Insert Pages

I am needing to run a batch that will insert a document after the last page of another document. The tricky part is, both the document and the document attachment are going to be different every time, though their format is the same.

Here is an example of what I am needing to do: I have a document called 581-12.pdf and another document called Att 581-12 (or I could rename all the attachment files 581-12_1.pdf if that would help). I am needing the file called "Att 581-12" to be inserted at the end of "581-12". I have probably 20,000 files that are in this format. I'm not sure if javascript is how this is done or not; I am completely new even to the concept of javascript.

I can rename the Attachment files to any sort of format that would be the best. Any help on this matter, even if it's just saying "this can't be done" would be beneficial, so I can know that I need to start working on doing this manually. Thanks in advance!

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
