I would like to know if it is possible to insert text into a pdf using a form.

If so, how can this be done.

The application is going to be on a flyer we would like our volunteers to be able to customize and download as a non-editable, print quality PDF that they can have repro'd at their local copy/print shack.

thx in advance

What language you will be using for server side?

For PHP - there some free pdf creation libraries

For ASP - there are many products, but all are commercial. I would recommend you to go for activePDF from activePDF.com B'coz its well documented and performance on the server is very good.

For ASP.NET - there is a opensource project known as Report. Goto Sourceforge.net and search for .NET PDF. (Currently sourceforge.net is down, so if you need this one i will give you the url later)

For others - Search in google "languagename  dynamic creation", it shuld show few of the products that is available for that language.

I will be using PHP.  If you have any more recommendations, let me know.  In the meantime I'll pop in that google search.

I apologize for such a delay in awarding you your rightfully earned points.  I have been swamped (had my head up my ass).

Have a great Holiday Season.
