Mail merge Excel data to PDF


I have a PDF registration form for our youth sports chapter.  Additionally, I have an Excel spreadsheet that contains all registration information for all participants in the program.

I want to use the data in the spreadsheet to automatically fill in (mail merge) the PDF form and generate 1 form for each registrant.

I have searched the web and adobe help docs but haven't had any luck so far.

I am using Excel 2011 and Acrobat Pro DC on my Mac running OSX 10.10.4.

I have attached a copy of the registration form.  The spreadsheet contains sensitive data, so I can provide an example upon request.

My first thought was to open the PDF in Word 2013 and then set up a mail merge from there, but that PDF doesn't seem to convert very well into a Word document. As your version of Word is older than mine it probably won't work as well/at all but might be worth a try.

You could try this script/utility:

You can also apparently do this in Adobe InDesign if you have that.

The script, although a bit pricey, worked like a charm!
