    We need a program that can combine multiple PDF files into one; but, for security reasons, it cannot be an on-line service. It must operate on a free-standing computer that does not have internet access.

    Is there something that is free or low cost that works well?

    Just for this reason I bought Adobe Acrobat (a long time ago) , I haven't really looked but I do not know if free PDF converters (for local installation and use) offer this possibility.
    If it's that important then maybe the investment is justified.
    Maybe others here have an idea, but this is my tip/suggestion.

    You are most likely correct and my research so far suggests that.

    One of my problems right now is determining which versions of Acrobat will combine PDFs and allow rearrangement of pages. There used to be a side-by-side chart with check boxes for this kind of comparison; but, I can't find that anywhere now.

    I don't know about compare options, but the versions I have been using permits to combine add one or multiple sheets from one document into another or create new documents from the extracted pages.
    I am now using Adobe Acrobat X Pro which has all the options I need.
    The previous version I used was Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional
    I think that the current Acrobat Reader has much more options than the older versions but I'm not sure about that.
