Thank you for your post.
I am unable to replicate the issue. This is what I have done:
1. I created a new database file with one Text field "Name". I entered one record Name="TSGal".
2. I created a script "Save to PDF", with the script step:
Save Records as PDF [ Restore ; With dialog: Off ; "1a.pdf" ; Current record ]
3. I set the Security options "Require password to control printing, editing and security." Password=test, Printing Not Permitted and Editing Not Permitted.
4. I created a script "Append to PDF", with the script step:
Save Records as PDF [ Restore ; Append ; With dialog: Off ; "1a.pdf" ; Current record ]
5. I set the same Security options "Require password to control printing, editing and security." Password=test, Printing Not Permitted and Editing Not Permitted.
6. I executed "Save PDF", and then executed "Append PDF" three times.
7. I then open "1a.pdf", and there are four pages.
Let me know what I am doing differently than you so I can reproduce the issue.

Thanks, TSGal, for the reply. Your answer did provide a clue.
Mine was a relatively complex script combining three different layouts. The error I made was in not setting the security exactly the same for all three PDFs. If the appended PDFs did not have exactly the same security setup as the original, they would be appended but without any data (blank pages).
So, using the same password and the same settings (high resolution printing, in my case) on the original and all appended PDFs is important. For some reason, I thought I only had to set security on the first PDF and that appended PDFs would “adopt” the same settings.
I was wrong!
