VBA Excel Bat file xpdfinfo recover output. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I have a VBA macro in Excel.

    This opens a shell and runs a bat file.

    The bat file runs pdfinfo.exe that reurns text into the command window.

    How do I recover that text out put into excel for parsing etc.?

    Thank you in anticipation.
