Hello vb/pdf experts
I have a windows application written with vb.net and I would like to do the following in the application:
1. open an existing template.pdf containing text fields.
2. populate text fields with data from database.
3. check appropriate checkboxes.
4. save as partNumber.pdf
My client and I both have Acrobat Pro installed on our machines and I'm looking for a solution that is reasonable or free. I have evaluated ABCpdf and it works but it's too expensive. I think this can be done with vb and the Acrobat jsobject but I don't know how to do this. Is there a way to access the field name on the pdf form so I can populate it with data? I have searched for code samples to do this but have not found any so if you can point me to code sample or provide a sample here it would be much appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your help.
