    Sign the created PDF file with cfPDF (with permissions = 'AllowSecure')

    How do you choose which digital signature to use.  Do you store the file on the server somewhere?  If the document is not stored on the server, or dynamically generated from a db, is that possible.  I found the suggestion you made elsewhere just needed an example of implementation.

    I would like to close this question out and I'm not sure I fully understand your recommendation.  What I would like to do is create digital signature fields in the PDF document generated so that folks can electronically sign the document after the document is generated.

    I was really trying to dynamically generate a pdf with data from the data source then to dynamically add a signature field to the pdf so the user could add their signature.
