Is it possible to populate a PDF from an excel sheet?


Not applicable
I have been asked to create a dynamic PDF which will take values from an excel sheet & grow accordingly... Is it possible to link cells(which may not yet have values) in an excel sheet to fields in a dynamic PDF?

Thanks in advance

Hi Chris,

Did you manage to work this one out?

If using Acrobat prior to 9 to create forms, you can use Acrobat's JavaScript ADBC, Adobe Data Base Connection, to connect to an SQL database. A named range in Excel will meet this requirement. If you have created your form in LiveCycle Designer to create your forms you can use the data connection.

Hi Geo,

I'm a newbie to PDF Forms. Can you direct me to some documentation on this or maybe another thread on this forum that explains this in detail?

Of course, more help from yoursefl on this will be most appreciated.
