Assuming you want to extract the data from the form fields, here's a simple vbscript example using the inexpensive iSEDQuickPDF library (evaluation license key is available). It will put the field name/value attributes into an XML file for further processing, modify as desired.
To process all files in a directory:
FOR %i IN (*.pdf) DO cscript FieldData.vbs %i
