I'm having trouble finding a starting point to figure this out (VB, JavaScript, Macro?)

From an accounting program (ACCPAC) for Purchase Orders. The user is going to create a PDF by printing to PDFWriter.

For every PDF a blank Form Field needs to be drawn. This will have the same dimensions on every PDF.

The form needs to be emailed as an attachment. I see this can be done using File > Send Mail... However, the email will be sent to a different person every time (it's for a Purchase Order).

In the PDF will be the email address that will be used to send the email. Is there a way that Acrobat can grab the email address and insert it when the email gets sent? (if the text is tagged can it grab the tag "email" and use that?)

Then the email needs be sent
