How do I implement the procedure for populating Access data in pdf forms
I am very little about th Acrobat features and also do not know anything about Javscript. In order to learn, I made used EE search engine and have been studying all kinds of suggestions regarding this subject matter but I am stil much confused.
To get started, I loaded my Acrobat 6.0 Professional, and installed Access 2003, then implemented the steps suggested by an expert at the link below:
(1). I created 10 fields (incliuding checkboxes) using a scanned image of a Pdf form, then provided names for the
fields as suggested by the expert.
(2). I created an Acess Db called "Pdf_DB" with one table with the Pdf fields in them
- Lets call them Field 1, thru Field10
(3). From here I got stuck, I did not know where to paste the recommended VBA codes for Acrobat TJB
What i will really want is to let my users:
(a). Fill my Access forms for the fields bounded to my Access table, then
(b). With an On Click Event button in my Access form launch a template the PDf file to populate the data on the fileds I
have designed on the pdf which is also expected to be bounded to the same Access table
(c). Then print the Pdf file to a Laser Printer
As you will notice here, I am not going to use the pdf form to save data directly to Access DB, I am going to use Access form for data entry and then populate the data to the pdf form
I will really like to know how to proceed from here. Any help will be appreciated.
