Topic: Can PDF files be created as templates
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 32332

We have a need from our customers web applications to create pre-filled in forms for consumers to download off of the web, Direct Debit authorization forms etc. The consumer then prints off, signs and returns the forms to the supplier who will action the form.

Now we will not produce the PDF files ourselves, I would expect to get these from banks, credit organizations etc., and then modify them so that we can programaticaly populate the data.

The Web site is all Java and all the forms need to be created on demand using data either entered on the web or previously retrieved from the enterprise systems, not using SQL.

What I don't know is whether this is all possible or not, and whether this can be done using Acrobat or if a third party product is needed.

Thanks for your help
