Topic: PDF Pagecounts with VB 6.0 or MS Access 2003

I've seen this done with VB. What I used to do is generate a .txt file with the directory listing of all my PDFs and point this program to it and it would give me back doc and page counts far more accurate than ZPrint.

I'd like to write my own VB or VBA code to do this same thing but am confused. Should I be looking for header information or connecting to the properties and looking for page counts there?. If anyone can point me in the right direction or tell me what I can read about it would be very helpful.

Thanks,
