I am new in Acrobat, I have read some articles and help files about forms and data in Acrobat, such as submitting data to server, retrieve data from database. These seems easy to do, but I have one problem i cant solve, and find no article about this issue from my reading. Here is the problem I am having. I hope some of you can help me. Thank you.
Let say I have a form to collect customer contact data, and it will submit the data to database (through ASP). This is fine, no problem. However, problem arise when I want to retrieve specific customer.
I use a HTML page for selecting customer from a drop down list (list all my customer available in my database), and I want my PDF file to load the customer data i select from the HTML page. How can I do that?
My PDF have no knowledge what I have selected when it is open, can Acrobat Java script check web page variable? I doubt it does. Since my database will have many records, I cant simply retrieve all customer data into PDF. How can I solve this? or is there other way to make this works?
