You can automate Acrobat using a VBScript or VB program. I've not seen anyone use Perl (or Perlscript with WSH). More information is available in the Acrobat SDK which you can download. The mechanism is known as InterApplication Communication, abbreviated IAC, so look for that in the documentation.
So I need to first install Acrobat SDK right..
Thanks for your timely advice
I should add something, since you mention Perl, and it's very often a server-side language.
Acrobat is NOT for server use. It is not technically suitable and no server license is sold. If you need this to happen on a server, you need a solution that isn't based on Acrobat.
I am not asking for server,we have seperate license for individual systems, so that's not an issue,
I have downloaded the Acrobat 9 SDK, I dont know what else to do further,
Please suggest me any Tutorial or some other helpful articles, how to use the SDK,
Thanks in Advance
Thanks & Regards
You should try the Acrobat SDK forum...
did you find a solution for this? I am looking for the same thing. I want to write a program(perl, batch script, etc.) which could automatically convert pdf to excel without any manual intervention.
The Acrobat EULA (section 126.96.36.199) forbids unattended operation of the software.
