Printing 3000 PDF's

P: n/a
Help -

I have to print over 3,000 PDF's (all varying in # of pages). I need to print the FILENAME of the PDF printing on a page prior to each PDF being printed in order to maintain some organization. I noticed that with the Batch Processing command in Adobe you can execute javascript ... I was hoping that some java guru could show me how to simply create the javascipt to print that filename prior to each PDF being printed. I'm not java savy and need some hand holding. Is this possible?
Thanks in advance

Do you want the filename printed in the PDF? If so, here's a starter
for 10:

Crate a form field in the PDF and name it "DateCreated".

Paste this code in to Document > Set Page Action > Add > JavaScript

var f = this.getField("DateCreated");
var d = new Date();
f.value = util.printd("dd/mm/yyyy", d);

Go to http://www.adobe.com/ and use their online support for find out
how to get the PDF's filename.
