Extract PDF fields or Excel Cells to VB varibles
Posted on 2004-04-11
I need the ability to, using some sort of ActiveX contol, extract the values from PDF fields or Excel Cells (preferably PDF) from a protected spreadsheet to VB varibles for further processing...
I prefer to do this in a PDF file unless someone has superior knowledge that suggests this to be simpler in a different format. Basically, the orginating document needs to be able to perform calculations (inside the document), hence the PDF or XLS and then processed by a VB program that will extract certain fields.
Thanks for the quick help!
