Hi Mike,

It still leaves the question of how to extract the data from the completed form. Perhaps I've not hit the right keyword, but I've found /nothing/ on the net. Surely if there's a way of filling in a form, there's one of reading it!!

I have tested (for German Base Handbuch)

Works with Linux this way:

for i in *.pdf ; do pdftk "$i" dump_data_fields_utf8 >> auswertung.txt ; done

Set *.pdf to the pdf file you need. All data could be read in the text file "auswertung.txt". This file is formed in a special way. I used this formatting to get the data out of a form into a database by macro.
