    Convert all jpg and pdf files from folder into 1 single pdf with same width

    Cheers everyone,

    Does anyone know how to use code to automatically convert all jpg files and pdf files from a specific folder into 1 single pdf file ( with page marginalization - keeping the same width as the first page )

    Thanks
    God Bless

    I have used VBA to combine multiple PDFs to a single PDF. This is a rather common topic. Google "VBA merge PDF". I don't know if 'marginalization' can be programmatically managed. What should happen if some documents are in landscape orientation?

    I know nothing about converting JPG to PDF.

    you can use ImageMagick?

    here is a demo.
    on the Ribbon->View->Macro->Edit: subTestMagick
    when you are in VBA, press F5 to run the code.

    Thanks a lot again for your reply.
    I think i didnt explain quite well what i try to do. Sorry.
    When i run the macro with F5 from Excel it does nothing.... i think i mess something in there

    So, i have this folder C:\MIHAI\DOC\ASIG\DOSARE
    in this folder will be various jpg and pdf files that i want to convert to 1 single pdf .
    2024-02-03 06_24_52-DOSARE.jpg

    The output folder i want to be the same folder as the input one.
    So I modified your code but I think i did something wrong

    Option Explicit


    Sub subTestMagick()
    Const conType As String = "*.jpg"
    Dim col As New Collection
    Dim sFile As String, j As Integer
    Dim path As String, ext As String

    ' change the path to the correct path of your jpg's
    ' right now it will check all jpgs in Document folder.
    path = "C:\MIHAI\DOC\ASIG\DOSARE"

    sFile = Dir$(path & conType)
    Do Until Len(sFile) = 0
    j = j + 1
    col.Add Item:=sFile, Key:=j & ""
    sFile = Dir$
    Loop
    For j = 1 To col.Count
    Call ConvertJpgToPdfUsingMagick(col(j), Replace$(col(j), ".jpg", ".pdf"))
    Next
    End Sub




    Sub ConvertJpgToPdfUsingMagick(ByVal inputImagePath As String, ByVal outputPdfPath As String)
    'Dim inputImagePath As String
    'Dim outputPdfPath As String
    Dim command As String

    ' Set the paths
    inputImagePath = "C:\MIHAI\DOC\ASIG\DOSARE\Image.jpg"
    outputPdfPath = "C:\MIHAI\DOC\ASIG\DOSARE\Output.pdf"

    ' Build the command
    command = "C:\Program Files\ImageMagick-7.1.1-Q16-HDRI\magick.exe convert """ & inputImagePath & """ """ & outputPdfPath & """"

    ' Execute the command
    Shell command, vbHide
    End Sub

    Sorry I am such a newbie at this.
    Your help is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    do not Modify the sub ConvertJpgToPdfUsingMagick.
    only modify inPath or outPath on Sub subTestMagick.

    Thanks a lot ArnelGP for your patience with me. I did it and it worked but only converts the jpg not the pdf. So i have 8 jpgs and 2 pdf files in the folder and it creates a pdf file only with the 8 jpgs files not also with the 2 pdfs.

    I used
    inPath = "C:\MIHAI\DOC\ASIG\DOSARE\X\*.*"
    outPath = "C:\MIHAI\DOC\ASIG\DOSARE\X\Output.pdf"

    Thanks a lot again.

    Hi again!

    Is there a way to modify the code so that it deletes all the initial jpgs after the conversion is finished ?

    Have a great day!
    God Bless !

    Below the for loop that calls the convert code. You could check for the existence of the converted PDF file(s), if it's there then delete the image file the PDF was created from:

    ' delete the images that have been converted to PDFs
    For j = 1 To col.Count
        If Dir("C:\MIHAI\DOC\ASIG\DOSARE\X\" & Replace$(col(j), ".jpg", ".pdf")) <> "" Then
            Kill "C:\MIHAI\DOC\ASIG\DOSARE\X\" & col(j)
        End If
    Next

    Hi jdelano and thanks for your reply

    i didnt upgraded my correct code, sorry
    so I use this code to convert all jpg into 1 single pdf


    Option Explicit
    
    Public Sub subTestMagick()
    Dim inPath As String
    Dim outPath As String
     inPath = "C:\MIHAI\DOC\ASIG\DOSARE\*.*"
    outPath = "C:\MIHAI\DOC\ASIG\DOSARE\Outpu.pdf"
    Call ConvertJpgToPdfUsingMagick(inPath, outPath)
    
    
    End Sub
    
    
    Sub ConvertJpgToPdfUsingMagick(ByVal inputImagePath As String, ByVal outputPdfPath As String)
        Dim command As String
           command = "C:\Program Files\ImageMagick-7.1.1-Q16-HDRI\magick.exe convert -resize 1240x1753 -extent 1240x1753 -gravity center -units PixelsPerInch -density 150x150 """ & inputImagePath & """ """ & outputPdfPath & """"
        Shell command, vbHide
    End Sub
    So, after i run this code with a macro, I need to delete the initial pdf files.
    How can I adapt your code to this ?

    Thanks,
    God Bless!

    try this on a sample folder.
    Public Sub subTestMagick()Dim inPath As String
    Dim outPath As String
    Dim Path As String
    Dim dictFiles As Object, i As Integer
    
    
    Set dictFiles = CreateObject("scripting.dictionary")
    Path = "C:\MIHAI\DOC\ASIG\DOSARE\"
    
    
    inPath = Path & "*.*"
    outPath = Path & "Output.pdf"
    
    
    'save all the filename first so we can delete later
    Dim sFile As String
    sFile = Dir$(inPath)
    Do Until Len(sFile) = 0
        dictFiles(Path & sFile) = 1
        sFile = Dir$
    Loop
    'remove Output.pdf
    Select Case dictFiles.Count
    Case Is > 1
        If dictFiles.Exists(outPath) Then
            'delete only if there are other files
            dictFiles.Remove outPath
            Kill outPath
        End If
    Case Is = 1
        If dictFiles.Exists(outPath) Then
            Exit Sub
        End If
    Case Is = 0
        Exit Sub
    End Select
    'convert to pdf
    Call ConvertJpgToPdfUsingMagick(inPath, outPath)
    
    
    'delete the initial files
    For i = 0 To dicFiles.Count - 1
        Kill dictFiles.Keys()(i)
    Next
    End Sub
    
    
    
    
    Sub ConvertJpgToPdfUsingMagick(ByVal inputImagePath As String, ByVal outputPdfPath As String)
        Dim command As String

    Hi ArnelGP

    Thanks again for taking your time with me...

    Its really curious what is happening here

    So, if i use it like this it creates the pdf file from jpgs and then deletes all the files including the resulting pdf file:

    'delete the initial files
    For i = 0 To dictFiles.Count - 1
       Kill dictFiles.Keys()(i)
    Next

    If i replace -1 with -2 it keeps the resulting pdf file (output.pdf ) and keeps 1 jpg file ( the last jpg file ).
    For example if i have 1.jgp, 2.jpg, 3.jpg, 4.jpg it creates the file Output.pdf and keeps 4.jpg ( the last jpg file ).

    'delete the initial files
    For i = 0 To dictFiles.Count - 2
       Kill dictFiles.Keys()(i)
    Next
