We're trying to set up something so that our Access database can search a pdf.

We know we can save out the pdf as an rtf file, which is useful. However, the search file could get large, fast.

What we're hoping to do is to have the ability to search a pdf from an external source (Access). Then there is no space problem. We could enter a phrase and have Access search all the files of a certain type and (hopefully) presto! it would find all instances of that phrase.

Is there something we could create for Access (or for the pdf) that could help make this happen? Where / how could we get this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
