Topic: Text search in a pdf file using visual basic 6

Hi,
I am a VB 6 programmer and new to pdf world.
I would like to develop a vb program to open a pdf file and search the pdf file using vb code (not with acrobat reader find button). I just downloaded SDK from Adobe and tried to figure out how to do this. First, from reading the documents in the SDK I realized that the PDF Library would be the best solution but I could not locate PDFL40.dll. Second, I tried to get IAC to work, but I could not find the correct library referenced. So, basically I can only open a pdf using the OCX. Could anyone help me with this basic problem?
Cheers,
Justin Lee
