I have this questions :


In my Vb project I wnat to open a pdf file and do some operation on it , the code as the following lines :
Dim AcroExchanAVDoc As CAcroAVDoc
Dim I As Long
Dim Found As Long
Dim X As Long
Dim Y As Long
Set AcroExchanAVDoc = New CAcroAVDoc
Dir1.path = Dir1.path & "\" & "2004"
File1.path = Dir1.path
MsgBox Dir1.path & "\" & File1.List(1)
Y = AcroExchanAVDoc.Open(Dir1.path & "\" & File1.List(1), "")
X = AcroExchanAVDoc.FindText("Iraq", False, True, False) 'found = Find("europe")

When I run the application it gives me the following compiLe error :

(Invalid Use of new Keyword) , what I should do to avoide this error.

There is a library (API) called search (search.API) on this path :
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 5.0\Reader\Plug_Ins\search.API
Is it good for searching string on PDF document , how we can include it in
our project.

How can I find or download the API file (Aform32.api) to use the reference
(AFORMAUTLib.AFormApp ).

Your Answers will be appriciated.

Thank you
