Looking for the same thing, but with hundreds of location names. The location name is a field in the file and is different for every page. e.g. Sacramento, Red Hill, Canyon, etc. Can you grab that field data and place it as the suffix?

Would it be possible, and if so how, to have the suffix be populated by data from a field within the file (pages) I am exporting to pdfs? I often need to export hundreds of pages to individual pdfs. Right now, I use the incremental page numbers for the suffix, then have to go back and rename each pdf based on information on that page. For example, Myfile-101.pdf, Myfile-102.pdf are renamed Myfile-Sacramento.pdf, Myfile-RedHill.pdf., etc. The name of the each location is a field within the file, so I'm hoping the Export Adobe PDF>Create Separate PDF Files>Suffix code can reach into the file and grab the name of the city from each page. In the attached file, the desired name for the three separate pdfs created would be long the lines of Peters Canyon.pdf, RedHill.pdf, and Thorman.pdf. The location name is a separate field within each file. Thoughts??
