My agency is currently using fillable PDFs for applications, form letters, etc. and then placing hard copies into physical file folders. Our desire is to eliminate the physical files altogether by using existing Access/SQL databases to populate and store data from these forms. I know that we'll need to invest in some third-party applications but I really have no idea where to begin, so I'm turning to you all for help with the following questions:
1) What (if any) server-side applications act as a go-between for the databases and forms? I know that form data can be exported to a spreadsheet, HTML, etc. and then imported into the database but is there anything that handles this automatically?
2) Can Acrobat Reader be used in this capability (saving data to/from a database) or will we need to upgrade everyone to Elements or Standard?
Thanks in advance for your help!
