Title: Reading data from an external source and dropping it into a form field.
Post by: apastuszak on March 03, 2014, 06:45:07 pm
Is there a way to generate a PDF that could read in form data from an external file of some kind (perhaps a text file) and populate the fields?

Hi apastuszak,

I really do not know in the FOSS world how to go about this, something to put in the future to-do book (it keeps growing), but I populate pdf forms in Acrobat Pro with fdf files.  http://www.verypdf.com/pdfform/fdf.htm.  How are you getting the data or are you inputting it yourself?

Wish I could be more help.
