Topic: Import PDF Form data to access

OK, here's the scoop--I need to get MS Access to do the following:

1. Create a table of all PDF files in a directory.
2. Open each file, and grab the data in each field. Most fields are single entry, but one is repetitive (we've asked employees to list all brokerage accounts, could be from 0-20)
3. Store the data from the fields in a couple of database tables.

I am a fair hand or better with Access, and 1 and 3 are no problems...if these were excel files, piece of cake. However...they aren't.

If someone could point me in the right direction, like how to refer to PDF form fields, I would appreciate it a lot.

Thanks--

Ben
