Is there a scripting way to read values from PDF form fields from all PDF's in a particular folder, and then store those values as a CSV file in the same folder. Aka: 'Merge data files into Spreadsheet' option, but via a script?

 

Thanks.

Just via a script? No. A script can't know the names of the files in a folder. You would have to use a script in an Action and then run the Action on the folder to do it. Then another script to export the collected values as a CSV file.
