We are working on automating some customer files we receive on a daily basis. We have used some 3rd party tools to export as text.
BUT.. We tried a export to XML from our full version of Adobe Acrobat and we like how the data is exporting out.
here is the question.
Is there a way to use .net to interface with Acrobat to tell it to export the xml data?
We are getting a bit lost in the sdk info.
Do you mean XML form data? And by SDK, do you mean the "Interapplication Communcation Interface" (the IAC)?
You can read about it here:
Getting the text data
So you want to do a SaveAs > XML. Just like the menu item?
This can also be done by invoking JS from the IAC JSO. Here is the reference entry for the doc.saveAs function
Notice the "cConvID " input
Does Adobe only work with JS what about vb.net?
The job will be run by a logged in local user.
Please bear in mind that using Acrobat for full unattended automation is argued to be a licensing violation. This doesn’t apply if this is a repeated task performed by a logged in user, which completes and does not wait for future work.
