Read PDF with VBScript

Apr 26, 2010 6:59 AM

Is there a way I can read the text of a PDF with VBScript? I probably need some sort of API provided by Adobe but I cannot find one. I would think that others would be interested in this sort of thing so I do not understand why I am having some much difficulty finding it. Or is there a better way to interogate the contents of a PDF via a script?

    Have you looked at the Acrobat SDK ?

    The PDF format is very complected because it was designed to work on many different operating systems that might not even have the necessary fonts used in the document available by the user client. Also there can be data compression applied to the content of the PDF.
