I wish to search a specific text through list of all pdf files in a folder
VBA should be built in such a way that it searches texts through all the PDF files and gives output files containing that text in another folder

Can this be done? If yes, please help me with the VBA code

    You can't that simple. VBA do not support that solution.

    To see good automatization in code you should reference to Adobe full version (not reader)
    or you can try to use MSWord for import and export (1:10 success)
    or look for power automate in business 365 license
    or use OCR programs to do that
    or web applications
    or cellphones applications based on the same sue.

    If you use outside services, you giving them your files for good.
