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!


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.


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
