Topic: Automating acrobat file creation

Hi, Perhaps someone here can help me.
I am wanting to use acrobat to send out monthly statements from my proprietary accounting system. The trouble is that the system creates a new report for each customer which is usually spooled directly to the printer. We can select to "print to PDF" using the adobe printer but then we have to manually enter each file name as each statement is printed. Is there not a way to tell acrobat to assign filenames automatically based on a record in the report or a default name/folder combination with consecutive numbers. An example would be Stmt_Mar_100 where 100 could increment for each statement printed.

In the old days of "dos" one could sometimes run programs with arguments in the command line to avoid having to respond to prompts that the program threw up.

Any help in this regard would be appreciated.
