I've made a vb6 app that lets the user do the following:

1) View a PDF document.
2) Select page(s) from that document.
3) In the background:
a) Open another PDF document that has only one page, said page containing one large FreeText annotation.
b) Populate the contents of that annotation with database values, by replacing "" tags with database values.
c) Save the result as a new PDF file.
4) Create a third PDF doc, merging the doc created in step 3 with the pages selected in step 2.

The resultant document still displays the "" tags - UNTIL user clicks on the annotation. THEN the 'real' values appear. For users with only Reader, they never can get to see the values - although viewing the PDF in notepad reveals that the values are indeed there.

HELP. Any ideas here?

Adding a PDF Stamp Comment

OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
