John, (Excel string search in a PDF)
I've seen your work on a couple of forums. I have a need to do multiple searches of text strings(unique names) in an excel spreadsheet for an entire column. Currently, I select the cell, copy the contents of the cell into the “acrobat find” window and search. Once I find it, I do some quick analysis then repeat.
Can a vba script be written so that, copy the cell(G3), paste in the PDF find window, search's. Once found and analyzed, I repeat by going back to excel, copying cell(G4) paste to PDF window and hit the search button. I have to do this up to 1500 times for each document I analyze. I would like a script where I hit ctrl-z, it automatically goes to the next cell down and copies the unique name to "find Acrobat" window and does the search, presenting the PDF page. (saving multiple keystrokes and errors.)
I will have both excel and the pdf active on my desktop because I analyze each page found.
I'm new here and posted full thread
