Acrobat problem seems to begin with Sierra

I have read other posts before posting here, and I find what seems to me the same syntax. But my script which ran up through Yosemite appears to have crashed in Sierra. I am down to the very simple snippet below:

• "myBinder.pdf" is saved and open in Acrobat
• The error on either open or close is that "variable binderDoc is not defined".

What is wrong here? Thanks for help!

Applescript:


tell application "Adobe Acrobat Pro"
   set nextDoc to document "page 2.pdf"
   set binderDoc to document "myBinder.pdf"
   --insert pages binderDoc after (k - 1) from nextDoc starting with 1 number of pages 1
   -- open binderDoc
   close binderDoc
end tell

Re: Acrobat problem seems to begin with Sierra

I don't own Acrobat Pro but the syntax used below is supposed to work.

Applescript:

set path2doc to choose file of type {"pdf"} # defines an alias

tell application "Adobe Acrobat Pro" # was tested with "Skim"
   open path2doc
   set binderDoc to document 1
   # work with the document
   delay 2
   close binderDoc saving yes
end tell
