FDF -> PDF via web
Posted on 2009-02-23
I am trying to create a web page that opens an adobe pdf with the pages fields populated from a database.
The concept seems simple. I can create the fdf file and MANUALLY select that FDF file and it opens the desired PDF with everything populated as it should be.
The problem I am having is getting the same thing to occur via the web. The fdf tool kit is installed on the server, the FDF file is created, the pdf file that the FDF points to is in place. My attempt is to simply call the fdf file to open expecting it to call its associated pdf file and display that pdf, populated to the user.
Where am I going wrong here??
I am using classic asp NOT asp.net
The result I get is a blank web page.
My code to call fdf file looks like this:
<A HREF="../../mydirectory/testingsrver.fdf" TARGET="_blank">Test it!</A>
