How to extract text from PDF with positions? How to call PDF Editor Toolkit Pro SDK from VBA source code?

Thanks for your answer but I still have 2 questions:

1- In the command line tool I still do not find commands to search a precise word parsing the entire document (we have to insert our stamp (.jif or text string) just in the exact page where this precise word exists)

2- We would prefer to use a VB based solution like the ones mentioned above (can you offer something like that?)

>>1- in the command line tool I still do not find commands to search a precise word parsing the entire document (we have to insert our stamp (.jif or text string) just in the exact page where this precise word exists)

"PDF Toolbox Command Line" hasn't an option to extract text with positions, however, you can use "VeryPDF PDF Extract Tool Command Line" to extract text contents with positions, you may download "VeryPDF PDF Extract Tool Command Line" from this web page,

http://www.verypdf.com/app/pdf-extract-tool/try-and-buy.html
http://www.verypdf.com/dl2.php/verypdf_pdf_extract_tool.zip

after you download it, you can run following command lines to extract text and positions from your PDF file easily,

pdfextract.exe -textpos D:\in.pdf D:\out.txt
pdfextract.exe -textpos -nopgbrk D:\in.pdf D:\out.txt

>>2- we would prefer to use a VB based solution like the ones mentioned above (can you offer something like that?)

"VeryPDF PDF Extract Tool Command Line" is a Command Line application, you can use Shell() or CreateProcess() function to call it from VB source code easily, if you don't know how to do, please feel free to let us know, we will assist you asap.

Hi,

We have worked on your suggestions and we have managed to satisfy all our needs with the tools you've mentioned:

-PDF Extract Tool Command Line
-PDF Editor Toolkit Pro SDK

We've just found some difficulties when we have tried to use the functions contained in "verywrite.dll" from vba:

When we invoke the mentioned functions for the first time, we get the "file not found" error message, while if we perform a "SaveAs" of the same file with the same filename into the demo folder the dll is found.

Obviously we've tried the following steps:
-to include the whole path in the function declaration
(e.g.
private declare function VerystampOpen Lib "completepath\verywrite.dll" (byVal sIn as String, byVal Sout as String) as Long)
-to copy "verywrite.dll" in the System32 directory,
-to register the dll with Regsvr32 Command from Command Line,
-to put the path where verywrite.dll is located in the %PATH% environment variable,

None of these workarounds have been successful, so please let us know what is the solution and we will purchase the 2 products. (by now it is a bit unstable because of these problems: sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't)

One more question: what is the difference between developer and server licenses? (what we need is to work with an homemade application installed in 1 or 2 different workstations)

Thank you in advance.

after you register pdfshell.exe COM Component successful, you can call "pdfshell2.shellExe" from VBA code properly, please refer to following VBA code,

-----------------------------
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
strFolder = fso.GetParentFolderName(wscript.ScriptFullName)
FilePath = strFolder & "\"

strTIFFileName = "D:\downloads\TM000001\TM000001.tif"
strPDFFIleName = "D:\downloads\TM000001\TM000001.pdf"

Set oPDF = CreateObject("pdfshell2.shellExe")
oPDF.com_VerySetLicenseKey("XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX")
FileID = oPDF.com_VeryCreate(strPDFFIleName)
oPDF.com_VeryAddImage FileID, strTIFFileName
oPDF.com_VeryClose FileID

MsgBox "Create '" + strPDFFIleName + "' file successful."
