Do you have anything written that we can look at and help out? Or are you looking for someone to write the script for you?
Actually I just need some pointers to start. I tried with CarlosCanto ´s script Open Multi Page PDF's (Introducing: Open Multi-Page PDF win/mac ) but when I run it with my PDF form it doesn't show the information inside the columns and rows that are modifiable. Which is actually what I need to get.
So, that's pretty much it. I just need to know what to do to get that info from the form. I'll do the rest myself.
Thanks a lot.

Can you post the code you're currently working with and let us know where you're having trouble?
In my experience, it can be tough to pull information from a PDF. Is it possible for you to post a sample PDF so i can begin to figure out how to pull out the information reliably?
If you're into manually exporting files and parsing text and the forms are conducive to this, you can try to export the PDF's form data as an xml or .fdf (?) file, those will provide a text document of that data.
You are right, this is the best way I believe. I had a pretty messy PDF with a lot of garbage in the XML side, but now I created one from scratch and it looks way cleaner and ready to use when I export it to XML.
Thank you for the help.
