Populate PDF with data from Goldmine

Hi,

I have a couple of PDF files which have customer fields which Im looking to populate with data from Goldmine. Ive done similar excel documents but wondering if its possible to do the same for PDF's.

Thanks

Can you create the spreadsheet, then PDF it? You could even create/export to a spreadsheet, then create a report in Word using mailmerge. Although you could also run a report against GM using Crsytal Reports, then PDF your results.

I was under the impression that PDF were solely used in an attempt to secure information before dissemination.

All good points. Let me elaborate a bit more.

What Im after is when  the user opens the pdf file, it grabs whatever data is currently being viewed in goldmine. Thats how the excel files work, I think it uses the settings in the ODBC admin configurator in control panel.

Is the PDF file static except for the data that you want to user to retrieve? I guess I'm having a had time understanding why you're choosing to use a PDF file to retrieve dynamic data.

The file has been provider to us by one of our suppliers. Right now, we are hand writing the customer data from our database onto the PDF. Ive created a slightly updated pdf with text boxes in so the users can cut and paste the data from the DB Client over to the PDF. The hope was to somehow get the text boxes to pull the data from the DB client over to the PDF file without any user intervention.
