Hi Gurus:
I am a beginner of Acrobat. I am doing some report generation using VB. Several preformatted templates was done by the other programmer and I have to use that template and SQL to fill in data to those fields on the template. Here is my problem and Hope somebody can help me.
Because of the nature of the report,a second instance of same template has to be used. As soon as I insertpages (which means 2 pages with exact same field names) all data on the second page were replaced by the data from first page. I think acrobat treat field name a global variable within a pdf document so it replaces it. How can I avoid that to happen? I tried to play with field name property and it turns out to be read only. I have over 50 reports to do. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
