VBS Import txt File

I'm try to work out a VBscript solution to import an entire text file (I can do it manually) into a pdf form. I'm having trouble finding any documentation on an appropriate AVDoc object.

    Not sure why you can't just read the text file and set the form field from the text in it?

    Is this an Acroform (made in Acrobat) or an XFA (XML) form (made in Designer)?

    Do you have the Acrobat SDK?

    The Acrobat SDK is what you need. It is mostly documentation, and does include the Acrobat OLE interfaces.


    Now, I'm sure there is no direct OLE method for this. The OLE methods haven't been touched in years.


    BUT, Acrobat JavaScript might be able to do this - don't know. If it can, you can use JavaScript from OLE.


    Don't assume that just because there is a function to do something in Acrobat that there is a corresponding method to automate it though.
