Sorry for the Post to this forum; still looking for any soltn that may help.

Hope someone can help me find a Command Line driven product to do the following...

I have an Oracle Database Report that will generate a PDF file (from Oracle). Embedded within this file, I need to insert various MS WORD Docs - these MS Word Docs are stored in the Oracle DB as binary BLOB data. Also contained within the Report is other Oracle Data.

I cannot embed the MS Word BLOB within the Oracle Report but I can designate the filename or I can create a PDF link to this external file; I can also create a pdf bookmark for this file.

A single report could have multiple MS Word Docs dispersed throughout it.

What we need:
I need to find all occurences of the special text (bookmark or link) within the Oracle Report generated PDF and merge in the actual MSWord doc (or have a command line utility to batch convert the MSword docs to pdf) resulting in a single pdf that is then renumbered.

Any suggestions as to whether there is an existing Product I can use to meet my goals?

This is an Oracle Report
data1 from database
data2 from database
end of report

I can either create special text at the insert location, a link via Oracle Reports for the text , or a bookmark.

My need however is to insert/merge the original MSWord file (or a converted PDF from this file) (abc.doc and abc2.doc) at the physical locations in which they appear in the oracle report pdf... resulting in a final pdf with all pdf's merged and at the proper locations and the final pdf renumbered to appear as a single doc.

Thanks for any response,

Adding a PDF Stamp Comment

OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
