Topic: auto name and save multiple pdfs from a report?

There's probably an easy solution to this but i can't find it anywhere after like 4 hours of searching.

I have a program that contains all of my business reports in it and when i try to write a report to pdf that has, say, 50 indiviual reports in it. It will ask me for each and every report what to name it and where to save it. What i want to end up with is all 50 reports in one pdf, one after the other.

So what i'm look for is a way to have a pdf writer auto generate names and auto save the pdfs so i don't have sit here and manually do it for every report. Then i can merge all the individual files into one pdf.

The only thing close that i've seen is somehow to configure the INI file so that if you type filename*.pdf in the save as field it will replace the asterisk with a number for all the rest of the pdfs, but i can't figure that out.

I have nitropdf writer and i find this how to that looks like what i need... http://www.nitropdf.com/kb/article.aspx?id=10058&cNode=3D8W4P
but i have version 5 and it's for version 4 and the options aren't the same to switch.

Anyone have any idea?? thanks a bunch i desperately need this to save me hours and hours of time sitting and typing numbers.
