Topic: PDF's to FAX Server, embedding FAX number

A company I work for purchased a Panasonic FAX Server a couple of months ago. They asked me to quickly ascertain whether we could programmatically send jobs to it, specifying fax number to dial. The server came with LaserFax software and tech told me no big deal, that you just embed codes within double brackets within the document to do things such as specify the phone number. Unfortunately, it seems that these phone numbers need to be in exactly Courier 12 (NOT True Type). If I put a form field on .PDF to replace fax number programatically, the Courier I can use there is True Type... so it will NOT work. I am programming in Delphi. Has anyone else had any experience directing .PDFs to a Fax server and have any recommendations about either this one or an alternative that I could automate this process?
