Hello to all you people that are much smarter that me !!


I could probably eventually figure this out, it would take me a very long time and thats what i dont have much of at the minute ... but why waste the time when I am sure someone knows the and answer already or would at lest be have a an idea of how to do this....  


Hopefully I can explain this clearly .... 


Here is what I am looking for .... 

is an APP or script that will allow 


To copy and past a set of PDF's and into a new subfolder but using a CSV file to dictate how many times any one particular PDF into said folder. 


for example: 


"Folder 2020"


Subfolder "PDF's"

2020 A01.pdf 

2020 A02.pdf 

2020 A03.pdf 

2020 A04.pdf 

2020 A05.pdf 

2020 A06.pdf 

**CSV file in the folder**


CSV File Info:



Design Code  

2020 A01

2020 A02

2020 A03

2020 A04

2020 A05

2020 A05


Column 2









An app I can launch (desktop) ...... 


1. that will prompt me to choose a CSV file from a folder ... 

which will give the command information:


2.Choose the CSV file.... 

3. Run Application.... 


4. App would then create a new sub folder called "binder 2020" for example.

It would then copy the pdf listed in the CSV file from sub folder "PDF's" into this new Subfolder "binder 2020"

and multiple times according to the number in the "count" column in the CSV file ..


end result: 


subfolder "binder 2020"


2020 A01.PDF  

2020 A01.PDF2

2020 A02.PDF

2020 A03.PDF

2020 A03.PDF2

2020 A03.PDF3

2020 A03.PDF4

2020 A04.PDF

2020 A04.PDF2

2020 A04.PDF3

2020 A05.PDF

2020 A06.PDF

2020 A06.PDF2

2020 A06.PDF3

2020 A06.PDF4


Hopefully that is clear 

I would really appreciate any input, suggestions, or point me in the correct direction ... 


thank you all for your time - its much appreciated
