Acrobat Pro 9.

I have Acrobat Pro 9, and I have a single PDF with a form.  I have a tab delimited text file that contains 300 rows of data. Assuming the fields in the form correspond to a data source (the tab delimited text file), I want to then print multiple copies of the PDF file, with each copy having the values of a different row in the data source.   How do I accomplish this?

From inside of Acrobat Pro 9 with my form open I have tried the Forms>Manage Form Data>Import Data.  It will pull up my tab delimited data file and I can see the multiple rows but when imported it only populates what the values are on row 1 of the dataset.

Thanks in advance
Misty

I was in a jam on a tight time to turn the project around and get it out the door so I ended up purchasing a solution from http://www.evermap.com/downloads.asp.

AutoMailMerge Plug-in
Advanced mail merge plug-in for Adobe Acrobat. Create, secure and e-mail PDF files from structured data sources.

I wasn't over the top about having to pay for a product but it did exactly what I needed so it was worth the expense.
