open and get field data on a pdf file

Avatar

Level 4

Hi Happy New Year to you all, need a little help on scripting.

I have a PDF form file "abc", reader-extended by using the reader extension server.

users use it by using the Reader-X.

there's a table on the form, it has x number of columns, a field in each column;

and y number of rows.

now I get y number of different PDF form files "qwe",

they are also reader-extended,

each of these forms has the exact same fields as in each row on the form "abc",

that is, each "qwe" form has x number of fields.  same field names as in "abc".

is there a way to script a button on form "abc",

so that when the user clicks on the button,

it will open one of those "qwe" forms,

reads the field data in it,

and use the data to populate one row of fields on form "abc" ?

could someone please give me some pointers on how to script this button?

I would also like to have another button, if possible,

such that when the user clicks on it,

it will take one row of the data in form "abc" and updates its corresponding "qwe" PDF file.

If you have a solution that does the same thing without using the above buttons mechanism, that's great too, I'd like to learn about it.

if your solution is too big to be posted here, would you please kindly send it to me by email at  ditto9888@gmail.com ?

thanks in advance!
