Filling the form fields of an Adobe PDF with data from an Excel spreadsheet. How do I copy the .js script?

We have to enter text into adobe form fields - how do I automate to get the data out of xls into the pdf text box fields?

Sorry,  I missed your previous reply.

The most straight forward way is to open up Notepad on your Windows system and copy&paste the script into a new document. Then use the "Save As" function and save it as a filename with the .js extension. It is still a text file, but it has a different extension.

Hi!  Yes, I tried the proposed solution and got thru the ODBC portion but am unable to save your brilliant script thingy as a .js in the Acrobat folder - I'm a complete dork and don't have a clue how to do that part.
