Topic: Find Words in a PDF file
Conf: (P-PDF) JavaScript, Msg: 104361

I have several PDF files and each PDF file has over 200 pages. Some of them even have 1000 pages.
I need to find certain words in each page of the PDF files.
I use Adobe Acrobat 6.0 standard edition.
I use VB to interact with PDF
When using the FindText method, the return code does not seem to return false when the find is not successful
I have a solution that iterates through each word in each page of the document to find the words. This approach seems to be very slow.
I have read postings where it says, it is possible to use the PDWordFinder method and use the Javascript interface from VB. can anybody please provide me with code snippet of how this is done. Thanks for the help.
