Topic: Read PDF fieldnames with FDFToolkit

Hi All have been trying to use the FDFToolkit to read a series of PDFs with ASP. I need to get the field names to fill it back in (which I can do with the FDF toolkit.) with data from a db.

Set FDFAcX = Server.CreateObject("FDFApp.FDFApp")
Set objFDF = FDFAcX.FDFCreate
set objFDF = FDFGetFile ("")
strFld = objFDF.FDFNextFieldName("") 'Collect the first field name by passing ""
response.write "<tr><td>Field0's name is:</font></td><td>" & strFld & "</td></tr>"
i = 1
Do Until i = 0
strFieldName = objFDF.FDFNextFieldName(strFld)
If strFieldName & "" = "" Then 'Check for an empty value, end iteration if empty
i = 0
strFieldValue = objFDF.FDFGetValue(strFieldName)
response.write "<tr><td>Field<% = i %>'s name is:</font></td><td>" & strFieldName & "</td><td>" & strFieldValue & "</td></tr>" strFld = strFieldName
i = i + 1
End If

If I am doing something wrong, please let me know.
