This is the wrong Adobe community. However - I will answer anyhow. TO work with PDF and VB - you need to get a VB lib that works with PDF documents. This is the only way you can perform this use case.

Hi smacdonald2008. Thanks for replay.

Do I need to download AxAcroPDFLib.dll or AxInterop.AcroPDFLib library?

Thanks.
