Excel to PDF Form Merge Save Print

I would like an Excel (VBA) macro that merges select Excel records with a PDF Form and sends to printer, and optionally saving the PDF file(s).  Saved file(s) to be given unique, sequentially numbered filename(s).

Fieldnames to be derived from left-most contiguous cells of first row of worksheet.  

Record(s) to print to be a choice of a) 'All Records'; or b) 'Selected Records'.  If 'All Records' is chosen, it is to be assumed that the first record is Row 2 and the last record is the last contiguous row with data in Column 1.

Is putting your form in Word an option?  IMHO coding in Office is 10 times easier and if you have Adobe writer or at least Office 2007, printing to PDF is a breeze.

Let me know.

Otherwise, post your PDF form and I assume you have Acrobat Pro?

I would rather use Word, but my brother and I are still debating over that one. The form I have now is just a generic form I made to work with (column1, Column2,...Column5. He has a few standard pdf forms that he uses, but... for now, I need it know if it is possible, and how.

I do have AcrobatX pro, though.

Word should work great and I even have written an article with supporting utility on that.

Check this out:

I think its much easier to develop forms in Word than otherwise.

Is it possible with Acrobat - yes, but not easy unless you find an Expert/Pro who's familiar with the Acrobat object model.  I've done some small work in this area, but no where near having a general purpose tool like the one I posted, above.

PS - if you think the article helpful, please vote YES!
