Renaming a PDF page label with information on the page... Then extracting the page with that label for the name

Sorry for the long title.

We have a variety of documents that we want to separate out into individual pages. Each document is several thousand pages. Ideally here's what we'd like to do.

1 rename each page label with the folio name. The folios names are not consistent but, the placement on the page is.
2 extract each page as a separate PDF with that folio name for the file name.

Tools. We have Acrobat Pro, Pitstop Pro & Enfocus switch as well as tools like Excel.

I understand this may be impossible but, this is the first step in a very involved project so, anywhere we can automate is a huge plus.

Ok, do you have any sample files you can send me please?
you can send them to andrewb@enfocus.com
I only need one or two for a proof of concept.

I guess the files can be split into single pages first, and then have the page labels adjusted in a second step?

What is your plan? Can you script a solution using pitstop? If so, what language is it? Just wanting to learn how to implement custom solutions to problems such as this.

Don't know what folio name refers to but I'm assuming it's just text on the page?

I've used Evermap Auto bookmark before. Assume you're in legal market?

It can create bookmarks from text on pages.

And then you can export the bookmarked pages - I think you can easily do that with the bookmark name as the file name but I'm not at my desk to check

This software is cheap too
