Topic: Crop using IAC and Exchange 3.0
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 52649

I have loaded in the type lib from the CD, can split PDF documents and merge them, but I've hit a problem that is beyond me now.
I can't get the page to crop before saving using IAC.

extracts of my attempt (using Delphi),

 AcroExchRect := CreateOleObject('AcroExch.Rect');
 Messageit('Failed to create AcroExch.PDNewDoc');

AcroExchRect.Top:= 100; 
{just use 100 to see if this works}
AcroExchRect.Left:= 100;
AcroExchRect.Bottom:= 100;
AcroExchRect.Right:= 100;

AcroExchPDDoc := AcroExchAVDoc.GetPDDoc;

The document opens ok but when the program reaches the 
croppages call, it give the following error...
"Project Projec1.exe raised exception class EOleError with message 'Method 'CropPages' not supported by automation object'. Process stopped."

Examining the type lib file I can't see the command croppages. Is this the wrong way of doing this? Can anyone help I've spent too many hours on such a silly problem!
