Correct.

I assume you mean that you need to send a PDF to the user, with
the FDF information merged into it, correct?

Correct.

>any possible solution ??

Two of them.

1) Put the PDF file where the FDF file can find it (web server,
send in the email as an attachment, etc.)

2) Use a 3rd party product such as FDFMerge
(http://www.appligent.com) to merge the PDF and FDF data together and THEN
just send the newly created PDF to your users.
