Topic: Auto-Sizing Imported Data Fields in PDF Files

I'm looking for a solution to a problem that must have plagued many before.
I'm importing data INTO a PDF form (i.e. business letter). The problem occurs when dealing with data of variable char length. Example: an address line with city, state and zip code. I've got 3 fields to accept the data. The "state" field is no problem it's always 2 chars. But the city could be "NYC" or "Poughkeepsie". I don't want alot of white space after the city, if the city name is short, or the name to be cut off if it's too long.
"NYC , NY 10023" looks bad in the document.
How can I dynamically set the field size according to the data?
According to Adobe Support, there is no way to do this in ver. 4 or 5.0. Is there a script or plug-in that can handle this?
Thanks for the help!!
