I had posted this in Acrobat Windows. It was suggested this (and the SDK forum) may be a better forum ...
I'm trying to load and then populate a PDF form programmatically using Access/VBA. I'm patterning this after code that worked fine in Acrobat 5.0 but is throwing errors in Acrobat 9. We're using Access 2007 on Windows XP and Vista computers.
The Access project has a reference to Adobe Acrobat 9.0 Type Library. Attached is a jpg showing all the references in the Access project.
The error "Object variable not set (Error 91)" is happening with this statement:
Set PDDoc = AVDoc.GetPDDoc
Here is the code I'm trying to use. I've always been a little fuzzy exactly which objects need to be created and the sequence they need to be created in. Once I got it working in Acrobat 5 I left it alone.
Dim WshShell As Object
Dim myApp As Acrobat.AcroApp
Dim AVDoc As Acrobat.AcroAVDoc
Dim PDDoc As Acrobat.AcroPDDoc
Dim PauseTime, Start
Set WshShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
' run the Acrobat application within that shell and pass it a document name
WshShell.Run "Acrobat.exe C:\Users\Christian\Documents\data\dist5\dist05_face_only_nh.pdf"
'// Set/Get Acrobat Objects
' create an automation object that references the active copy of Acrobat
Set myApp = CreateObject("AcroExch.App")
' reference the acrobat document we loaded above
'Set AVDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.AVDoc")
Set AVDoc = myApp.GetActiveDoc()
' this apparently runs some method available to AVDOC
Set PDDoc = AVDoc.GetPDDoc '<------------------ THIS IS THE LINE THROWING THE ERROR
' this is how you reference the JSObject
Set jso = PDDoc.GetJSObject
' let's clear the form
temp = jso.resetForm()
Set x = jso.getField("txt1_name")
x.Value = "Bing Crosby"
Set x = jso.getField("txt2_sex")
x.Value = "Male"
Set WshShell = Nothing
Set myApp = Nothing
Set AVDoc = Nothing
Set PDDoc = Nothing
Thanks in advance for any help.
