Download the Acrobat SDK from ( it has example
code and a compiled version of a VB program the does just that - adds Fields
automatically to a PDF file (via OLE Automation):

It appears that you can't search for Form Fields, I might be wrong, do a
search at Adobe using the Support Database/TEchnical Database etc, if you
can't search on them, perhaps look at adding the names of the fields to the
KEYWORDS, section under Document Info. You could create a routine in
Javascript that would list the names of the fields, for which you could
easily cut/paste into the document info box.
