Do you use Acrobat? Then you can use the Actions Wizard to create a batch action that will the work for you.

There are already a lot of tutorials available showing the how-tos.

Just google it or use the help documentation.

Thanks Very much Radzmar,

but this envolve human action,

is a way can we do it by writting some codes... like powershell, jave, or will be nice to me if we do it from sql commands ..

or write some code for batch process running every night.

 

Just what I want is, 

run a program with following steps (it is proced evry night without humna intervension) 

1. convert to xml  all pdf files from specific folder  (always the pdf file is uploded to specific folder and the converted XML fill be saved in the same folder)

2. load the data from each XMLfile to sql table (loop until the last xml file)

3 and delete the processed pdf and xml  file.

 

Again Thanks for you time

This use would be a breach of the Acrobat license, I think. It’s for personal use.

That kind of automation isn't possible. Acrobat doesn't have a hotfolder feature nor can it delete existing files in the file system.

You possibly can develop such a solution yourself with the Acrobat SDK?!
