How to automate "PDF Prepare form" for all Access text fields with VBA

Hello,

I'd like to automate the process wich transforms all text areas of a PDF file into form fields.

I can do this manually with the "Prepare form" button, then let Acrobat automatically detect fields.

Step 1 : I create a PDF document from Access VBA containing a lot of text areas

Step 2 : VBA should transform the text areas into form fields

 

Any idea ?

Thanks.

Prepare form is not something you'd want to use in automation. Just use addField (javascript method) through the VB: JavaScript bridge.

Hi,

Since the reports are generated by Access, why recreate them from scratch in PDF ?

 

Thanks
