My problem is widely known and frequenty posted, for instance: "Can anyone help me to open and search for a specific text string in a PDF document, return a true or false indicator (and nothing else)?"
The answers mostly refer to and include Set gApp = CreateObject("AcroExch.App")
which, as I understand, works only with a certain level of Adobe Acrobat being installed.
My question now: I want to give this type of functionality (via an MSAccess Form, i.e. populate a ComboBox with PDF filenames which answer YES to certain text occurences) to - say 20 - users in my company who have Adobe Reader 9.1 installed and not more.
Bying this number of Adobe Acrobat licenses for just this purpose would be a heavy overkill which I just can't afford.
