Hi All,

We need to make a CD with Browse and Search capability on a 150 page PDF. For the Browse capability - we plan to create an

XML file with all the Chapters, Sections and Figures. The PDF will be in French, so many third-party tools are not supported.

Hence we have the following questions.

For the Search capability, we are planning to break-down the PDF Chapterwise and also have copies of the same in Word DOC or

XML formats. The Search would function on these .DOC or .XML files and lead the user - on clicking the Chapter/ Section/

Figure to the specific Page/ Heading within the PDF file. Also by breaking the PDF chapterwise, the user can bookmark and

save the specific chapter.

1. Is the above approach okay from a programming point of view? Is there a better way?

2. Upon clikcing a link on either the Chapter or the Section or the Figure, the user must be led to that specific

Chapter/Section/Figure of the PDF OR atleast that Page.

3. Can we do this using VB? We have read that pdf.ocx that would be required could achive this ONLY in a browser, and not in

VB or VB.NET. Is this correct? Is there an alternative?

4. Also, I understand that pdf.ocx cannot be shipped separately, and we have to ship Adobe Reader alongwith the CD, which

would contain the pdf.ocx file

1. Is this approach okay? Is there a better way?

Thank you.
