Ascii to PDF using word or PDF template and then converting the pdf to a PDF form


Not applicable
Hi all,

We are planning to restructure the whole PDF generation process in our application.. We use ASCII files to provide the data feed..Is it possible to create PDF files out of them with a pre defined Template and then to make that PDF editable with some form fields.. ??Is PDF generator capable of handling this or should we be looking for some other livecycle product..?? Kindly help us in this regard..

The Process goes like this:

ASCII file for data feed ----> template file -----> PDF file with form fields generated.. ---> Reader extention rights given to the Form fields for the end users to save the forms using Adobe reader..

Dear Deepak,

what you are describing can be achieved using LiveCycle Forms and LiveCycle Reader Extensions

Kind regards
