How is the pdf document created?  If it is being generated from a report, or Word document you can just change the color of the date font to white so that it is not visible in the pdf document.

Hi
I found a solution for it by replacing the exact position of the date with a annotation layer using white font text. It is working but is a quick fix solution. I need to parse through the page and go through objects to the text object containing the date and delete it from the PDF file. How can I do it or is there any other way to delete the date from it.
thanks
