I have used Acrobat Reader to pop up forms from a VB app populated via an FDF file constructed in the app. The Shell command Shell(<Adobe Reader Path> <FDF Path>) has worked for 5,6 and 7 but doesn't work for 8. Does anyone know why and what the solution is.
sDataFile = "C:\program Files\Directer\Letter\Formdata.fdf"
dAcroWin = Shell("C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\Acrord32.exe " & sDataFile, vbMaximizedFocus)
