    You can use amyuni driver ($) or PDF creator (GNU) for merging files into a single PDF

    Here is part of the help of PDF Creator

    Combine Documents

    Combining documents is a very useful feature that allows you to take two separate documents and convert them into one PDF. Combining documents is as easy as printing two documents.

    1. Open the documents you wish to combine.

    2. Print the first document as you would on a standard printer.

    3. When the print dialog appears, change the printer from your default printer to the PDFCreator printer. If the PDFCreator printer is your default printer, you do not have to change it. Then click OK.

    4. Another window will appear asking you to fill in some information to create your PDF. Then click on the Waiting button. The PDFCreator print monitor comes up and the document is in the queue.

    5. Go to the second document and print it using the PDFCreator printer.

    6. The PDFCreator print monitor now shows both documents you wish to combine in the queue. Select both documents and go the the Document menu and click on Combine. The two documents will become one.

    7. Now click on the Documents menu and click Print. PDFCreator will ask for some information and where you want to save it or email it.

    8. Your PDF will be created and opened up in your default PDF viewer or opened in your email program.

    I know that when unloaded PDF creator cames with some VB code, I never needed to do it by program.

    About amyuni I tested it sometime ago and to merge files just change a flag to merge at the moment of printing.

    As you can see both use the printing as a mean for merging files.

    You just check the names for the files in such directory and open then, to print all in a single file.

    I got some idea how to do it
    but i geting error

    my code is
    Dim AcroExchApp As Object
    Set AcroExchApp = CreateObject("AcroExch.App")

    Error is "Runtime error 429 - Activex component cann't create object"

    How to solve this error

    Check this

    But remember that in order that such aproach work you must have acrobat type library (It's in distiller or acrobat full version), if not the error is that such object descriptor can't be found.

    It depends on the tool you are using to make pdf files, but the procedure is the same

    1-put the files in a directory (special for such files)
    2-in your app you have a filelistbox directed to the directory
    3-open one file
    4-merge the file to the file you need to make
    5-go back to step 3 until all files are merged

    For the tools, if you don't have any, check the entire post.
