You could take a screen shot of the pdf file and use OCR 3rd party components to convert the image into text ? Not done any of that via programming but have come across things like that. Maybe have a look around on www.planet-source-code.com or www.pscode.com which is the same site I think. www.codeguru.com , www.allapi.net or even vbnet.mvps.org
