Dear all,
would like to search for a keyword in a pdf document through access forms.
I have links to these pdf's via a hyperlink field.
So, I would like to create a text keyword search in access so it searches through the pdf's and provide me the corresponding record(s).
Is it even possible? If so, I would really appreciate any help on this!
Thanks much!
Bala

You can run the command line converter ps2txt.exe (which converts pdf files as well as ps files):
Postscript to Text Converter
The evaluation version will run forever and can convert a couple of pages to text which you then can parse for information/data to import.
