What is the error that you are receiving with Distiller (??) ...

You can achieve what you want quite easily from Access (VBA) using Acrobat
and IAC (Inter Application Communication).

To utilise IAC each user must have a full copy of Acrobat, or the reports
must only be generated on the machine with the licensed copy of Acrobat.
You cannot use Acrobat via a WebServer - before continuing I would check the
End User License Agreement (EULA) to ensure your workflow isnt comprimising
the EULA.

You will find full code examples for merging PDF files 'on-the-fly' at
CodeCuts -

Good luck and if you need any further help just let us know.
