    Export PDF programmatically (to text) - which adobe tool/SDK

    vinvaite1

      Hi

       

      I need to extract text from thousands of PDF files programmatically. 

       

      Is there anything offered (by Adobe) which i can use to programmatically do this? 

       

      Preferrably an ActiveX/COM object which i can instantiate via VBScript or similar, under Windows 7 64-Bit.

       

      Alternatively are there any good third-party vendors offering components to do this?  I did try a few but some crashed under VBScript for some reason / do not seem stable.

       

      I tried calling the adobe technical sales people (to ask for a product/sdk suggestion) but i was unable to articulate my question... 

       

      - i was unable to get past the point explaining what a "text file" was..

       

      Please help!
