extracting data from PDF file using VBA (Excel) RRS feed

  • Question

  • i have been using the code described in the following link (by Hingwei Hu)

    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/cf7a3788-6335-4fbe-91f0-dc3e45912ee3/simplest-way-to-copy-text-from-a-pdf?forum=vbgeneral

    However, the output  - specifically the doctext variable seems to gather the PDF data  in random order

    so for example if i have a PDF file that has the following text"

    First Name:  Joe

    Last Name: Smith

    My doctext variable contains

    First Name:

    Last Name:

    Smith

    Joe

    it seems to be in this random order - why ?
