Printing from MS Access with PDF as background
Posted on 2009-04-07
I would like to print some data onto an existing PDF document. The PDF document I have is a form with many blanks. I would like the Access DB to fill in the blanks. Most of the Access data is printing table style, with some pages having a few records and some having many. My preference would be to have the PDF set as a background for the report, but Access only allows image files as background. When I converted my PDF to a JPG, the image is very low quality once it is embedded in the Access report.
The non-electronic way to do this would be to print the PDF form, load it into the paper tray of the printer, and print the Access report. I just think there must be some way to do this electronically.
