I have some code in Access 2010 VBA that reads records and creates a single PDF from multiple linked PDF's with bookmarks.  This code works fine:

<<<< CODE begin >>>>>

Private Sub BuildDatabook_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_BuildDatabook_Click
   Dim sqlStr As String
   Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
   Dim vFiles() As String
   Dim iNrOfFiles As Long
   Dim iNrOfIncorrectFiles As Long
   Dim sPDFFileName As String
   Dim sPDFBookMark As String
   Dim sNewPDFFileName As String
   sNewPDFFileName = "\\sample\" & Me.Order_Id & "\Data_Book\10000_" & Format(Now(), "YYYYMMDDhhnn") & ".pdf"
   iNrOfFiles = 0
   iNrOfIncorrectFiles = 0
   sqlStr = "SELECT * FROM TABLE WHERE Order_ID = '10000'"
   Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(sqlStr, dbOpenDynaset, dbSeeChanges)
   Do While Not rst.EOF
      sPDFFileName = rst("FileName")
      sPDFBookMark = rst("BookMark")
      If Len(Dir(sPDFFileName)) = 0 Then
         iNrOfIncorrectFiles = iNrOfIncorrectFiles + 1
         ReDim Preserve vFiles(1, iNrOfFiles)
         vFiles(0, iNrOfFiles) = sPDFFileName
         vFiles(1, iNrOfFiles) = sPDFBookMark
         iNrOfFiles = iNrOfFiles + 1
      End If
   Set rst = Nothing
   If iNrOfFiles > 0 Then
      If iNrOfIncorrectFiles = 0 Then
         updfConcatenate vFiles, sNewPDFFileName
         updfConcatenate vFiles, sNewPDFFileName
         MsgBox sNewPDFFileName & " File Created, but " & iNrOfIncorrectFiles & " file(s) could not be found."
      End If
      Application.FollowHyperlink sNewPDFFileName, , True
      MsgBox "No valid files found to be merged", vbInformation, "Build Databook PDF"
   End If
   DoCmd.Hourglass False

         If pvarFromPaths(1, I) <> "" Then
            updfInsertBookmark pvarFromPaths(1, I), lngInsertPage, , newPdfDoc
            mlngBkmkCounter = mlngBkmkCounter + 1
         End If

What i would like to do is when saving the file, reduce the final pdf file size as much as possible.
I don't see any parameters on the PdfDoc.Save that could cause the reduction in file size (hoping there is, just have not found it yet)
I see other Save options like PDSaveCompressed in PDSaveFlags2, but do not know how to get them to work or which ones to choose:
enum PDSaveFlags2 {
     PDSaveUncompressed = 1 << 0,
     PDSaveCompressed = 1 << 1,
     PDSaveCompressStructureOnly = 1 << 2,
     PDSaveRemoveASCIIFilters = 1 << 3,
     PDSaveAddFlate = 1 << 4,
     PDSaveReplaceLZW = 1 << 5,
     PDSaveOptimizeXObjects = 1 << 6,
     PDSaveOptimizeContentStreams = 1 << 7,
     PDSaveOptimizeFonts = 1 << 8,
     PDSaveOptimizeMarkedJBIG2Dictionaries = 1 << 9,
     PDSaveEnsure7bitASCII = 1 << 10,
     PDSaveAutoSave = 1 << 11,
     PDSaveOverrideCollections = 1 << 12
If none of the above will reduce the pdf file size,  I have found other options like PDFOptPDFVersion - setting it to 0x00090000 for Acrobat 9 and up, but again cannot find any examples on how to use it:
AVDocDoSaveAsWithParams    ()   
PDFOptPDFVersion enmAcrobatVersion - can set the version to support to (like acrobat 9 and up)
PDFOptObjectCompression - not sure what the enumerations are on this one.
struct _t_PDFOptParams {
     ASSize_t size;    
      ASPathName asPathDest;    
      ASFileSys fileSys;    
      ProgressMonitor progMon;    
      void* progMonClientData;    
      PDFOptPDFVersion enmAcrobatVersion;    0x00090000
      PDFOptImageOptionsRec imageOptionsColor;    
      PDFOptImageOptionsRec imageOptionsGrayscale;    
      PDFOptImageOptionsRec imageOptionsMonochrome;    
      PDFont* arrPDFontsToUnembed;    
      ASInt32 cPDFontsToUnembed;    
      PDFOptFlattenTransparencyOptions pdfOptFlattenTransparencyOptions;    
      ASBool bRemoveFormActions;    
      ASBool bFlattenFormFields;    
      ASBool bRemoveJavascriptActions;    
      ASBool bRemoveAlternateImages;    
      ASBool bRemoveThumbnails;    
      ASBool bRemoveDocumentTags;    
      ASBool bSmoothenLines;    
      ASBool bMergeImageFragments;    
      ASBool bRemovePrintSettings;    
      ASBool bRemoveSrchIndex;    
      ASBool bRemoveBookmarks;    
      ASBool bRemoveCommentsAndWidgets;    
      ASBool bRemoveDocInfoAndMetadata;    
      ASBool bRemoveObjectData;    
      ASBool bRemoveFileAttachments;    
      ASBool bRemoveCrossRefs;    
      ASBool bRemovePrivateData;    
      ASBool bFlattenVisibleLayers;    
      PDFOptObjectCompression enmObjectCompression;    
      ASBool bUnencodedToFlate;    
      ASBool bLZWToFlate;    
      ASBool bRemoveInvalidBookmarks;    
      ASBool bRemoveInvalidLinks;    
      ASBool bRemoveUnreferencedNamedDests;    
      ASBool bLinearize;    
      ASBool bSkipIrreducibleImages;    
      ASBool bSubsetEmbeddedFonts;    
      ASBool bOptimizeContentStms;    
But again, can't find any examples on how to use these collections.
Any help would be greatly Appreciated!
