    In Visual Basic is, I believe, impossibille (alltought nothing should be impossibille). An idea would be to save the pdf file as text, using adobe reader. Than read the text line by line. However, text copy of a pdf is not always good representative of the actual pdf file. In the higher programming languages such as c#, solutions can be found, but only in associate with "adobe systems" corporation.
