Interactive PDF documents

Alteryx Partner

We have been presented with a challenge recently regarding interactive PDF files.


Does anyone know of a way to read and write interactive PDF's please?


We have already done PDF parsing with static PDF's using R libraries.

@DiganP Thanks for your reply.


I had tried the previous version of this macro.  This version appears to work well on static PDF's, but I get the following message on interactive form based PDF's.


"If this message is not eventually replaced by the proper contents of the document, your PDF
viewer may not be able to display this type of document."


It then goes on to suggest upgrading to the latest version of the Adobe Reader



Hi @DavidJohnson 


I am tasked with doing the same. Did you find a solution?

Hi @ddiesel 


Unfortunately not.


I'm still hoping someone will come with something for interactive PDF's.
