I have done this using an empty, readonly form field and some Javascript
that sets the date and other text in the form field

The javascript is in the open page action and was taken from an example in
the Javascript documentation.

The only problem I have found is that is you jump to an area of the page
where the form field doesn't show, the field won't update.

To get around this, I put a thin field with the same name all the way down
the page. The appearance used white text to hide it and was not printable.

I was using FrameMaker so all of this was set up on Master Pages.

Hope this helps

Subject: Printout date on PDF

From: "Joanna"

------ AcroBuddies Forum | ------

I need to have the printout date on all PDF files
printed from a Documentum system.
Have considered plug-in for Documentum but since the
application would be web-based the licence fee would
be to high since it is calculated on users.
Is there a plug-in available either for the Distiller
or for the Reader software?

I appreciate any advice I can get.
