Populating Fields from Database

Hi everyone,

Need some help from the experts.  I have a PDF form that is already connected to a Progress/OpenEdge database through ODBC connection.  Here's what I want to happen:

Just as an example, in the database suppose the 'Job' table contained 3 fields: JobID, JobDescription, and CustomerName.  When a user enters a job number into a specific PDF form field which corresponds to the JobID field of the database, the form fields in the PDF for Job Description and Customer Name auto-populate with the corresponding information from the database.

Can this be done?

Thanks so much,

Jon
