Importing PDF file into Access

Importing PDF file into Access
Views: 220
I am running Access 2007. On my switchboard I would like to create a link to a stand alone PDF file located in a folder outside of the database. If I go to the External Data tab in Access it allows me to link to many different types of external files (text, HTML, XML, etc.). But I don't see any way to create a simple link on the switchboard that will open the PDF file. Is such a link possible to be made

Importing data from PDF to Access

I know I'm a newb, and this might be a dumb question, but I have searched all over the internet for an answer and still have nothing.

I have a fillable PDF file and I need the information in the PDF to be automatically imported into an access database. The PDF consists of 2 pages and has well over 50 different boxes that have to be filled out (its a shipping/receiving form

Link PDF files

What would be the best way to link pdf files in an Access database form?

For each record there could be more then one pdf file. I would like to automate the process as much as possible. The pdf file would exist on a network drive and the user would need to go to their record in Access and then link the pdf files.

I started but am having problems with Access not opening the pdf file, it will open word files but not pdf,

Create one PDF file from many Documents

I have been scratching my head about the best way of doing this for a few weeks now and just wondered if any one who is clever than I can assist!

I have a folder with multiple files in, some .doc, .pdf , .msg, .jpg and I was wondering if there was anyway of producing a single pdf file of of these. It would have to be automatedand I will be doing this multiple times.

I have managed to get the list of filenames into Access and into a table (thanks to Allen Browne!).

I think there are two ways of doing this.

1. Create a PDF of each file in the folder and then merge them together

The problem I see with doing it this way is how do you create a pdf of a file that isn't open(aka the .doc)? Or create pdf of a jpg from within Access?

2. Create one file, no merging, of each of the files.

Printing report as PDF file in Access 2000

I would like to know if there is any why to print an access 2000 report as a PDF file so I can email it. I know I will need to loop through a list of contacts, read in their email address and then send the pdf file as an attachment and think I can do this. The problem I am having is getting access to create the PDF file.

How do I convert Word Documents, Spreadsheets and PDF to Base 64?

I need to file with a government agency who requires all filings to be done in XML. They require attachments to be encoded into Base 64 and then inserted as part of the XML. The application is in ACCESS 2007 so I am using VBA. I see snippets of code on the internet that lets me encode a string, but nothing about how to encode an XLS or PDF.

I am open to importing and then encoding within the code inside the application.or .converting before importing into ACCESS. Any suggestions (other than "run away")? hints? solutions

Hyperlink and PDF

Version of Access used - 2003
Plan - Hyperlink field in a form which would pull up a saved PDF of a saved invoice.
Problem - added Hyperlink - used edit hyperlink function to look up and add PDF file which is saved on PC to the field but the PDF will not open. Tried the same with a word file - it will open.
Question - Can Access 2003 open a PDF file? If so - how can I fix this. If not, will I have to reformat the file to be JPeg or something like that?

Importing XML into MS Access 2003

MS Access has been around for a long time, and over time it has added support for importing and exporting its data into HTML when HTML was king. When the extensive use of XML appeared on the landscape, MS Access added importing and exporting features to its arsenal. According to product documentation, MS Access 2003 fully supports importing and exporting XML.

Create an Adobe PDF File From an Access Database

You need to share a Microsoft Access file with others, but not all of them are running Access. Converting it to a PDF file will not only compress it, it will allow those not using Access to view it. The process for doing this depends on the version of Access you use.

Importing a text file to access

K this is to keep track of my inventory on parts for rc cars.

Extract data from a .PDF into Access.

I need to get data from a .PDF file.

I have checked out a number of PDFto EXCEL/Word applications, but the workflow required is far from ideal.

In a PDF-reader, I can Save As a .txt-file. I could decode that output in VBA. I'd prefer to keep the entire cycle within Access, but how do I from Access convince a PDF-reader to do a Save As .txt ? Some shell script? Key-logger?
