Topic: Displaying FDF document within VB program

Hello,

I'm currently developing a small application with VB using the FDF Toolkit. I have successfully created a FDF file however, I can't seem to open it in the VB program. I use the component 'Adobe Control for ActiveX' and it displays PDF files just fine. But when I try to open a FDF with that component, it says: "File does not start with: %PDF-" and it won't open. It opens fine via the ShellExecute of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

How would I open it in my VB program??? I wish to extract data entered by the user in the FDF file 'AFTER' it already has been created.

Thanks
Flee
