Sorry for the late answer. I didn’t see there was another reply. So far I decided to go with the “webbrowser” object available in Vba. You gave a correct example on how to use it above.
- Declare the object
- use browser.navigate (pdfdoc)
Anything else is simply related to fill in a database from copy pasting or commenting the pdf document.
The issue with the webbrowser is that it is dependend of the installed browser plugin (acrobat reader for example) which 2 of the 4 users have problem with. (very slow doc opening) and everytime there is an acrobat update pushed the application stop working until the update is finished.
My initial idea was to find a way to use sumatrapdf because it is lightweight and has a good performance and there is no anoying lateral useless bars showing during reading. That’s all.
To be honest, I had to move to another project because of the timing constraints and the issue with copyright that could arise using your product in my little application. (Acrobat reader is part of the company application package, so it doesn’t work but it is legal to use it).
AS soon as the other project is done I can investigate on the information you provided.
