We have an external application that creates a PDF file for each customer delivery which has 2 - 14 PDF delivery documents within that PDF file. Is there a way to open the PDF file in code and extract the PDF documents within that file?

    Not really sure I understand what you are trying to do. Are these PDF documents going to be 'hard coded'  in the application code and opened without having to do a selection ? If the user still need to do a selection of the PDF document, I don't see a benefit for the request.
     
    To create a hyperlink to open a specific PDF at a specific page you may want to try something like this
     
    In HTML, to link to a specific page in a PDF file, add #page=[page number] to the end of the link's URL.
     
    For example, this HTML tag opens page 4 of a PDF file named myfile.pdf:
     
    HREF="http://www.example.com/myfile.pdf#page=4

    Thanks for the reply - what we are attempting to do is extract actual completed PDF documents from a PDF file. The vendor is creating one PDF file for a delivery stop which then contains multiple PDF documents. We would want to extract those documents from that main file and place the documents into a predetermined destination.

    If all these documents are in one PDF file you are going to have to scan the document manually to get the page range numbers for each document. I cannot think of a way to parse these out programatically.

    Some OCR (Optical Character Recognition) can do the job. You can try but almost all they are not free.
