Topic: Shortcut key to focus on first form field

I've developed a program in VB with ADO. I now want the VB program to send data to a PDF file, into the form fields I've setup.

I think I can possibly use FDF toolkit for this, but I just need a quick solution for now, and will do it properly later on.

I'm going to send keystrokes to Acrobat and pass my data that way for now. HOW CAN I GET FOCUS ON THE FIRST FIELD USING KEYSTROKES? I'll then Tab to the other fields for now.

Thanks.

pps. Does anyone have a simple sample code to do what I need in VB?


finally ppps. If FDF activeX dll is used to fill forms etc., what is the Acrobat ActiveX dll for?
