Phase 1: I need a simple application that will batch process PDF files and read a barcode that is on each page. The PDF(s) are 1 page image pdf files. Each file (page) contains a 128 type barcode and a usps barcode. There may be occasional file (page) without barcodes. It would be nice to capture the usps code but not essential. The software should output a simple ASCII file with two [three] fields: Barcode Value, [zip] and Filename (complete path would be ideal). I will ultimately be importing the data to a MS Access (or similar dbase format) table. In a perfect world I would like to be able to select the highest level folder and process all subfolders beneath it as opposed to having to add individual files.
Phase 2: would be a process for checking the data [output in phase 1] for duplicate files (barcodes) and tagging the new record to reflect that it was a duplicate. Ms Access available (2003) and Excel but I am not sure either would be the best for this type of application.
