ActivePDF Toolkit vs. FDF with ASP database integrated PDFs
Posted on 2004-04-14
CALLING ALL EXPERTS:
I am making PDFs based on a recordset pulled through ASP from a database. I can do this with FDF.
I need to make one page that is identical for each recordset, and every time this PDF is pulled it will have a different number of records. So I need one page that is re-manufactured for each recordset with different information on it per the different record. I can do this with FDF (FDFaddTemplate) however, the viewer must have a full version of Acrobat (not just reader) to open it if it uses FDFaddTemplate. Am I missing something? Is there another command that can be used?
Up till now I have been against buying ActivePDF. But I am beginning to re-consider based on the above. It also seems like I may be able to get more help/support with ActivePDF than FDF.
Please give me your thoughts - I would really appreciate it. Points will be awarded to most helpful or split among several most helpful. Thanks again!
