You cannot merge PDF files by using the OOo API. But you can try iText for this task: http://www.lowagie.com/iText/. I'm using it for that myself.

Thank you very much. Using iText we can create , merge, updated PDF doc easily. but the problem in iText is we can't convert other doc type to PDF, correct me if I am wrong.

Yes, correct.

That's absolutely correct, too. BUT, that was not the question you asked in your previous post in this thread. Anyway, do it like I do it: Load your DOC documents, insert data as you like (I insert text at several bookmarks), save your documents separately as PDF files. Use OOo's UNO API for all these steps. Finally merge all the separate PDF files into one PDF file with iText.
