Hi,

please, I need help to start a PDF action (Adobe Acrobat Pro DC) with a VBA code from MS Access.

Adobe Acrobat Pro DC should open, start the the action and must be closes afterwards.

The pdf-filename and the name of the action must be handeled over as a variable.

 

I hope it is possible to do that.

Many thanks for your help.

No, you can't do this. There is some automation available from VBA, using the info and comprehensive documentation in the Acrobat SDK. But it does not run an action. You may be able to write an app that does the same things as the action (for example, insert pages), other things are quite impossible (for example, save as optimized PDF). Bear in mind Acrobat is an end user tool, your app and Acrobat must run in the foreground, and not on a server.
