It is perfectly possible. You need to set up ODBC in the Windows Control Panel and enable ADBC on Acrobat.
Having said that, Adobe provides the ADBC package but DOES NOT recommend using it.
Hard to believe, I know...
You can't use ADBC in Adobe Reader.
ADBC only works in Acrobat, not Reader.
If a PDF has extended reader rights, one can use the "importData()" method to import a tab delimited data file.
