Is the data saved in fields are as plain text?
If the former, it should not be very complicated to do. If the latter, it's more of a challenge. How much scripting experience do you have with Acrobat?
Thanks for the reply.. The pdf's are scanned and ocr'ed, they are not in fields. I don't have much experience in coding in Acrobat, so please include as much detail as possible in your explanation. Thanks!
I have been asked to archive some files in pdf to a database, although they were actually created in tables. Can anyone please advise how to extract this data in a sql database.
I am familiar with sql but not adobe.
harshmody, in that case, I think you will need to find a way to figure out which data you need to extract and which you do not. You can probably do it based on the labels, for example if you have something like this:<br /><br />Your name: <NAME><br /><br />then you search for the words "Your name:" and extract what is after them. This can be a bit tricky to code, however. If you would like, contact me by email and we can discuss this in more detail.
