Using Microsoft Print To PDF To Recover Damaged PDFs

Prendio can accept multiple page Scanned Invoices but a PDF Invoice can only be matched to the same Purchase Order. This document details how to use the Microsoft Print to PDF printer to separate a multiple page PDF into single page PDF documents.




Note: This procedure can also be applied to multiple page Scanned Packing Slips as well.

Accounts Payable > Scan > Scan Match


The above example illustrates a 5 Page Scanned Invoice and each page is for a different Purchase Order and Supplier.

This PDF document is then opened in Adobe Acrobat.


1. In Adobe Acrobat the file is printed and the Microsoft Print to PDF printer is selected.

2. Pages is selected and only Page 1 is requested to print.

3. Print is then pressed.


4. The user is then prompted to enter a name for the PDF file that will be created.

Note: Invoice for Supplier 1, Invoice for Supplier 2, etc. is used for the examples in this article. Naming the file with the Invoice Number and/or Supplier Name can also be done.

Repeat Steps 1 - 4 to print each page of the document as a separate PDF file.


In the above example 5 separate PDF documents were saved following this procedure.

Accounts Payable > Scan > Scan Upload


The 5 PDF documents are then uploaded in the Scan Upload window.

Accounts Payable > Scan > Scan Match


Each of these Scanned Invoices now appears in the Scan Match window as single page PDF documents and can be matched to separate Purchase Orders.
