Topic: PDF Fields - It can't be this hard

I've read enough Adobe documentation to last me a lifetime. I have a test Adobe Acrobat Form (Thisis.pdf) with text and three fields on it:

My name is: Phillip My age is: 53 My IQ is: 12

Phillip is the value of the first form field, 53 is the value of the second and 12 is the value of the third. The names of the form fields are appropriately: Name, Age, IQ.

I want to extract the field values (Phillip, 53, 12) from the PDF form and put them in seperate vb text boxes:

text1.text
text2.text
text3.text

I just want to extract the field data and not the rest of the text.

I will be eternally grateful to whoever could tell me how to do this.

Thanks so so much.

Phillip
