Topic: Iterate Through All Fields with VB

I am running Acrobat 6.0.3. and ACCESS 2003. I want to catalog all fields on all PDF documents in a folder. The following code is very close, but there is one serious problem. If multiple fields of the same name exist in the same document, annot.GetTitle returns a blank. How can I get the field name of these troublemakers?

Sub PdfFields(l_sFolder As String, l_sFilename As String)
Dim AcroExchPDDoc As Acrobat.CAcroPDDoc
Dim AcroExchInsertPDDoc As Acrobat.CAcroPDDoc
Dim page As Acrobat.CAcroPDPage
Dim annot As Acrobat.CAcroPDAnnot
Dim l_lRet As Long
Dim x As Integer
Dim y As Integer

l_sFilename = Dir(l_sFolder & l_sFilename, vbNormal)
Set AcroExchPDDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.PDDoc")
Do While l_sFilename <> ""
l_lRet = AcroExchPDDoc.Open(l_sFolder & l_sFilename)
For x = 0 To AcroExchPDDoc.GetNumPages - 1
Set page = AcroExchPDDoc.AcquirePage(x)
For y = 0 To page.GetNumAnnots - 1
Set annot = page.GetAnnot(y)
If annot.GetSubtype = "Widget" Then
Debug.Print l_sFilename & " " & (x) & " " & (y) & " " & annot.GetTitle
End If
Next y
Next x
'necessary to recreate object inside loop
Set AcroExchPDDoc = Nothing
Set AcroExchPDDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.PDDoc")
l_sFilename = Dir

Set AcroExchPDDoc = Nothing
Set annot = Nothing
Set page = Nothing
End Sub
