Rename files in PDF Generator

Hi!

This is the situation.

I have an old aplication and im needed to print from it (over 80000 files).
This app always print with the same name (ex RP001) so, i cant use a standard PDF printer, because it keep asking  to overwrite.

I need to know if LiveCycle PDF Generator can help me with this requirement (automatic change files names or something)

PS: Sorry for my english.

Thanks.


Guido.

What file types are you trying to convert to PDF? PDFG sounds like it might be a good fit here. PDFG can take many input files (postscript or image files) via a "watched folder" for example, and convert them all to PDF.

The files print directly from an aplication to paper, but we need it in PDF. I thinks is PostScript (this app doesnt have support and no one knew nothing)

PDFG can definitely convert PS files to PDF in batch. A typical scenario is either sending these files to LiveCycle via a SOAP, or REST endpoint over HTTP, or the files can be dumped into a watched folder on disk, and PDFG will pick them up and give back a converted PDF.
