This is question is a follow up to my last succesfully answered question regarding using VBA to read Adobe field names.

How can I extract ALL the fields names in a PDF document - this would remove the requirement to identify them individually first and allow me to simply move the values to corresponding Database fields which could be dynamically created?

Go back to my old VBA program and after you create the JSO object, insert the following code snippet:

 This will iterate over all fields and create a string with the names of these objects.


' find all form fields
    Dim fields As String
    fields = "Form fields: "
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim f As Object
    For i = 0 To jso.numFields - 1
        fields = fields & " " & jso.getNthFieldName(i)
    Next i
    MsgBox fields

Open in new window
