    PDF Open and Save to Word (A2003 SP2)

    Using Access, users want the ability to point to a directory containing PDF files and then convert the PDF files to word.

    I assume one would loop through the PDF files and then at each file, open, save as word, and then close.

    Pointing to the proper directory is easy enough. Can anyone suggest a good reference or website for working with Adobe to open and save the files to word. I know I can manually open and save as word but am unsure how to automate it.

    Put this post in Access as I am not sure if this post belongs here, in Word, or elsewhere.
    Regards,

    Gary

    The Adobe SDK is available from Developer Resources. However "Access to the full Acrobat SDK requires either membership in the Adobe Solution Partner Program or the Acrobat SDK Developer Subscription"...

    Thanks Hans.

    Something else I just learned is that Acrobat Professional has the ability to bulk convert PDF to RTF docs built into the system so the docs can be opened in Word. This is very handy. For those that have acrobat professional, complete the following steps to convert to RTF.

    - Open Acrobat Professional
    - Select Advanced
    - Select Batch Processing
    - Select Save All As RTF
    - Press Run Sequence Button
    - Select OK in Confirmation Screen
    - Navigate to folder with PDF Files
    - Select one or many PDF Files
    - Press Select and the process executes

    Note that PDF docs made from graphic files and those that are protected do not convert.

    Wish I knew this a long time ago....
    Regards,

    Gary
