We worked with Acrobat Writer till 2003. Then we started work with Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional in 2007.

We store all PDF files on a common storage and the users can print them out from their workstations.

We want that the system prints the system date and time (and the user's name if possible) onto the PDF document automaticly right when it has been printed by the user.

Could anyone help us to create a solution for this need?

NOTE: The clients use Adobe Reader.

You could create a custom separator page:
•      @N: Prints the user name of the person that submitted the job.
•      @D: Prints the date the job was printed. The representation of the date is the same as the Date Format in the International section in Control Panel.
•      @T: Prints the time the job was printed. The representation of the time is the same as the Time Format in the International section in Control Panel.

To add a separtor page, you need to go in:

Properties of your printer - Advanced - Separator Page

the website linked above explains the file format
