Set AcroExchAVDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.AVDoc")
Set AcroExchPDDoc = AcroExchAVDoc.GetPDDoc
' Open the authoring tool
Set AFormAut = CreateObject("AFormAut.App")

' Get the current field list form adobe, and count. I am sure that
' there must be a way to get to the field directly, but I could not
' find it, so we iterate through the fields looking for ours
Dim vRect(1 To 4) As Variant

vRect(1) = 0

vRect(4) = 0
