Topic: MERGING PDF's
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 74202

Hello:

I have several single-page PDF files (templates).

I need to merge several single-page PDF files into one multi-page PDF file, and send the resultant PDF file to some browser.

I use the next code for append PDF templates (fileA) at the end of PDF "fileB":


Const ForReading = 1, ForWriting = 2, ForAppending = 8
Const TristateUseDefault = -2, TristateTrue = -1, TristateFalse = 0
Set FSB = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set FileB = FSB.GetFile("C:\ASP\fileB.pdf")
Set TSB = FileB.OpenAsTextStream(ForAppending, TristateUseDefault)

Set FSA = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set FileA = FSA.GetFile("C:\ASP\fileA.pdf")
Set TSA = FileA.OpenAsTextStream(ForReading)

Dim recordPDF

Do While TSA.AtEndOfStream <> TRUE
recordPDF = TSA.ReadLine
TSB.Write recordPDF & vbCrlf
Loop

TSA.Close
Set TSA = Nothing

TSB.Close
Set TSB = Nothing

The result PDF file (fileB) has double size but when I send it to some browser (response.write) only the pages appended (fileA) appears. The original pages belong to fileB not appears.

I do not what happened. Can somebody help me?

Kind regards

- Diego
