Topic: Retrieving Bookmarks using VB6
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 97424

I've searched the postings and find many references to this problem (most 1-2 years old), but no real solutions. So here goes:

Each week I receive a pdf file, created by a service bureau, that contains images of documents they printed and mailed out for us. They have indexed the documents by customer number and date. Each week we get a new pdf file, with documents. I need to be able to extract/export/read the bookmarks from the new pdf and write them out to a SQL database. The hope is that when a customer service rep wants to see a document for customer A, they can query the SQL database for a list of bookmarks, spanning multiple pdf files, and select the document they wish to view.

I am using Acrobat 5.0, (not just the reader) and have downloaded the SDK.

Any tips / suggestions are very welcome.
Thank you,

OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
