I read out a PDF with Date / Time ...
It worked very well with the pdfs created in the year 2004, but something in 2005 was changed and the order of the elements change.
If I try to get the text elements somethimes the order isn't the order you see. For example if you see 04.04.04 8:00 9:00 1.00 it could chage to 9:00 1.00 04.04.04 8:00 and its totally unsteady mostly if there are some similar numbers or text.
It also happen when I copy and paste it into a txt file.
If I copy it as a table or highlite one line and it shows in the German adobe reader "Textfluß" it means something like floating text, its like the whole line is managed as one string, the order of the elements doesn't change.
I tried to read it out after using CreateTextSelect and CreatePageHilite but without any success.
My Question is: Is it possible in VB to read out the lines or the text as one string or as a table?
Does someone know what the reason for the changed order could be? Could be there a better way to get the problem handled?
Thank a lot of
