Embedding Adobe Reader (AcroPDF.dll) In Access Form
Posted on 2007-08-10
I've tinkered around a while try to make Adobe PDF Reader work with Access. I added the reference from the following path:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Acrobat\ActiveX\AcroPDF.dll
Doing this allows me to drop an adobe control on the user form. However, no method or properties are visible. Does anyone know if it is possible to embed the adobe reader into access?
The end result that I am really after is printing a series of PDF documents at once from stored file paths in the access database. I would prefer to pre-choose the default-printer and automatically print all individual documents with minimal user interaction. A working embedded acrobat reader should be able to provide this kind of functionality. I've seen examples of calling adobe from a shell, but this would require considerable user interaction to individually print and close each PDF document.
