Apparently I don't understand object programming since I have read the documentation and still haven't a clue on ole automation of adobe acrobat with visual basic. Thanks to George for the great sample of how to open a saved file and get the field data from it.

Can someone give me a sample that will allow me to to use Visual Basic to do the following:

1. Open a pre-made form in acrobat that has blank fields where the fields can have data entered.
2. Extract the entered field data so that it can be used by the VB Program (without saving the form).

What I am trying to do is to have blank forms that VB will launch and the user will fill out.

The vb program would then extract the data and send it to a database.

Is this possible?

Thanks for any information that anyone can give me on this matter.
