Topic: Wrong order of text extracted from PDF hilite

I use VB6 and AcroExch.App to extract text from PDF files. The PDF documents contain printed tables and columns of text. If I define the rect box to highlight a specific table in the document, the extraction works well. But if I hightlight the whole page, the text lines come out in the wrong order and locations. For example, a line of text on the left of a table might come
out on the right of the table.
How do I highlight a page and extract all the lines in the same order? and also be able to extract the relative position of the text including spaces?
Thanks for your -HELP-
