Topic: using vba to read pdf files via activex
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 94561

I'm trying to get my script to read pdf files via the
appropraite appplication(Adobe Acrobat Reader). I'm not
sure how to go about doing this. Can anyone please help?
I've supplied my codes below. I'm using an activex
component supplied by adobe for the coding to read the pdf file. The
program is a HMI (Human Machine Interfacing) system.
The codes are in vba format.

Sub LoadFile(ByVal PDFFileName As String)

'Define the path and filename
PDFFileName = "C:\Documents and Settings\Joy\My
Documents\PDFFileName.Pdf"

Set ObjAcrobat = CreateObject("Acrobat.Application")
ObjAcrobat.Visible = True
ObjAcrobat.Activate

End Sub

Sub Print()
Dim PDFFileName As String

'Define the path and filename
PDFFileName = "C:\Documents and Settings\Joy\My
Documents\PDFFileName.Pdf"

ActivePrinter = "Acrobat Distiller"
SendKeys PDFFileName & "{ENTER}", False
Application.PrintOut FileName:="",
Range:=wdPrintAllDocument, Item:= _
wdPrintDocumentContent, Copies:=1, Pages:="",
PageType:=wdPrintAllPages, _
Collate:=True, Background:=True, PrintToFile:=False,
PrintZoomColumn:=0, _
PrintZoomRow:=0, PrintZoomPaperWidth:=0,
PrintZoomPaperHeight:=0
End Sub


How do i get the program to open the file in it's native
environment? If i wanted to open multiple files how would
i do this?

Thanks.
