I have developed an application in vb.net 2003 for the purpose of users being able to search the reports in pdf format.  I have a textbox where a user will enter any keyword and that will search every report for such a word and will display it on the form.  Can anyone help, or point me into the right direction.  Is it possible at all?  Do I need to store the pdf in the database that is already connected to my application?
Any suggestion or giudance will be very appreciated.

You probably need a library for PDF.
I found this one, http://www.tallcomponents.com/, but it isn't free.
I'm sure with a library to be able to read the document, you could search it.

thank you for replying,
but I am not familiar with Csharp, I only know vb.net.  Is there any pdf for vb.net specifically.

Thank you very much.
