Copying snapshot from pdf filles to excel wortksheets

Dear all,

Recently I have come up an idea to automize the process for copying snapshots (with the camera icon) in pdf pages to different excel worksheets (e.g. Copy selected area in Page 1 of pdf to Sheet  1 of Excel file and then Copy selected area in Page 2 of pdf to Sheet  2 of Excel file.... and so on). However, the trial vba code sticks to an error 91 in "gApp = CreateObject("AcroExch.App")" before I can trial the subsequent code.

Can anyone advise how to fix this problem and how to write the line for copying for acrobat and pasting to excel. The office documents e.g. Developing Application Using Interapplication Communication from Adobe did not help at all.

I am testing on a machine with the specification :-
1. Acrobat 9.0 Pro
2. Office 2007 with Adobe Acrobat 9.0 Type Library  in vba environment
3. WinXP Pro


Regards,


Kenneth  


Option Explicit

Dim gApp As Acrobat.CAcroApp
Dim gPDDoc As Acrobat.CAcroPDDoc
Dim jso As Object


Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

gApp = CreateObject("AcroExch.App")<-- Error sticks here
gPDDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.PDDoc")

If gPDDoc.Open("D:\Rate book.pdf") Then



End If
End Sub

Open in new window

VBA requires that you use the word "Set" when assigning to object-type variables.  Try this:


Set gApp = CreateObject("AcroExch.App")'<-- Error sticks here

Just curious if it was a "B" because it wasn't good enough or because it was just too simple?
Either way, glad it got you going.
