Topic: PDF manipulation on end-user system?

OK, maybe this has been answered many times before, but I just can't find the information I need...

In short, we created a Windows app. Based on user activity, we want the app to print 1 or more pre-prepared report-type pages. For convenience and consistency, we've found that distributing the pages in PDF format, and "shelling" out to Acrobat for viewing / printing, to be the best route. However...

We need to either A) create individual PDF files which would then be merged into one at run-time or B) find a way to tell Acrobat to display / print only pages 5,7,15,3,21, etc...

The end-user will have only Acrobat *Reader* on the system, not the full Acrobat program.

So, are there any tools available to do this?

Thanks... Don
