AcroPDDoc Javascript object slow using VBA for MS Excel

Dear all,

I am using a VBA macro to fill contents of an MS Excel-document into a PDF with formfields (on a Windows 10 machine). The PDF document contains about 1500 fields that are filled. Since the last Adobe Acrobat update (October 2nd, Acrobat Version: 19.008.20071) this process has become a poor performance. Before the update the filling of the PDF took at most 30 seconds. After the update it can take up to 30 minutes, depending on whether the Adobe backround process is closed in the task-manager or not. As far as I could find out the slow performance only affects the filling of the formfields of the PDF. Reading information from the formfields of the PDF seems to be not affected. Using the debugger, the performance is as before. Has anyone encountered the same issue? Is there some setting I have to change in order to get the "old" performance?

The connection between VBA and the PDF follows the standard procedure: Create an AcrobatExch.app object. Get an AcrobatExch.PDDoc object and from that one a JSObject unsing the getJSObject-method.

Thanks in advance for helping me

Update:

Since the last update (Acrobat version: 19.010.20064) this issue is resolved. The filling of JSObjects via VBA is fast, again.

What has changed, I cannot follow as the code and documents I use are unchanged. Something has been improved from the Acrobat side.
