VBA - Fill-in PDF Fields

Apr 7, 2010 7:08 PM

How can one fill-in a pdf form field using VBA and Acrobat Reader (Not Adobe Acrobat)?  Since using the plain reader a user can fill-in a form, I am looking to do exactly the same thing through VBA automation and then save the completed PDF.  Open, add data, save and close.


I have looked high and low and found code for the full blow acrobat, but nothing yet with just the reader and since the reader obviously has the capability of filling in the pdfs, I'm assuming it can be done as well through VBA.  Maybe my thought process is wrong?!


Thank you for the help and guidance.  It is greatly appreciated.
