Topic: Mail merge to pdf file

After a bit of advice if anyone can help.

In previous years we've sent a statement of benefits to employees using our own stationary which was basically a Word document and nice and easy to merge to. As of 2008/09 the UK Inland Revenue/HMRC has decided that we have to use their form which they have kindly supplied in a pdf format.

What i would like to know is how easy it is to do a mail merge to a pdf document and whether I can/am better using Acrobat 6.0 pro to set this up or LifeCycle Designer which one of colleagues has.

The Lifecycle help seems to infer that it can be done by creating fields on the form and then using 'Binding' to link to an XML data source but I want to be sure that this is the correct approach before I spend too much time going forward.

I hope someone can help and any advice given would be greatly appreciated.
