Topic: ActivePDF/Toolkit Problem

Hi group,

I'm working on an application using ActivePDf's Toolkit (DBtoForm method) to populate PDF files from a SQL database and have the following problem:

Multiple forms are being merged successfully, but do not contain the data from the database.

ActivePDf suggested removing the Provider = parm in the connection string and replacing it with Driver = {SQl Server}. Tried it and could not get this to work.

However, when I use the original connection string and add displays to the ASP file, and use Dreamweaver, the connection works fine.

Has anyone experienced this? Would it be better to use the Copyform method and add a statement for each field in the database to populate the form?

Any help would be appreciated.
