Hello All,
    I am trying a sample from for inserting pages from one file to another and somehow i get a "Cannot create component object" error at the following line of code.  I am new to pdf and would appreciate your help.

Please let me know,

Dim PDDocSource As Object
Dim PDDocTarget As Object

Set PDDocSource = CreateObject("AcroExch.PDDoc") -Fails here
Set PDDocTarget = CreateObject("AcroExch.PDDoc")

for Adobe's pathetic response to this, i.e. their documentation is wrong and Acrobat doesn't support OLE!

Actually, Acrobat does support OLE.  It just is very confusing and clumsy.  I had this same problem when I started poking into adding Acrobat into my programs.  The problem is that you are defining the variable as an object.  Normally, this would be fine, but, like I said Acrobat is clumsy.  You need to define the variable as a CAcroPDDoc.

ex. Dim PDDocSource As CAcroPDDoc

That got it to work for me.
