Topic: VB Automation using Distiller

My VB application prints single pages using PDFWriter as the printer. MY VB app changes the name of each page by writing the correct filename and directory in the PDFWriter registry. I need to switch to using Acrobat Distiller 4.0 for various reasons. I can no longer dictate the page's filename and location as I did before. Distiller uses a default PDF Output folder location and defaults to the document's filename .pdf (*.pdf). So when I print 10 pages, I get only the last one as all ten pages have the same name and the former pdf file is overwritten by the current one. I've looked at using the distiller API, but it requires Postscript files as input. I then run in to the same problems as I do with Acrobat Distiller. I have figured out a way to create a new port, but can not figure out how to assign the port to Acrobat Distiller. Any thoughts?
