Topic: Merge graphic layout with database into PDF, than create bookmark
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 151919

Here it is what I need to do:

1. Merge a graphic layout (invoice) with a database. We use Corel Draw for the graphic layout. I found a way in Corel Draw to print merge the layout with the database, than print it to PDF. The drawback is that it takes very long time, the method doesn't seem to be practical.

The client wants a pdf file with "x" number of pages, each page containing an invoice with a number and info of the beneficiary customer already filled in. He only wants to print it out or send it by email, I don't know for sure.
Problem no. 1: How do I do the merge and generate the PDF file? What software?

2. The PDF should have bookmarks, each one's title being the number of the invoice. How should I generate the bookmarks? What software?

3. The PDF should have a digital signature. I'm not familiar with this, could anyone please help?
