need to extract pages from a pdf based on content

August 22nd, 2020, 10:55 pm

Good morning,
  I need to extract pages from a (many 1000s) page pdf based on the content of the page
  some pages have transaction detail
  some pages have open position detail
  some pages have accounting detail (margins, etc)

  Once extracted, I would like to save the extracted pages as a single (new) pdf.

  It appears the "Action Wizard" might have the abiity to do this = IF I knew javascript.

Anyone??  THANK YOU in advance.

I've used Adobe Acrobat over the years, but never automated it this way. But I see there are a number of Action downloads. If it's important, either bite the bullet and learn enough JavaScript or hire somebody. There's also an Adobe community forum for questions and  tutorials
