Our accounting software populates Microsoft Word forms by replacing "tokens" in the pre-designed templates.
By designing the template as a text FDF and placing the tokens as field values, I can generate an accurate FDF.
So here I am looking at FDF in Word as text. Is there a way/macro/tool to automatically "execute" the FDF data so as to launch the target PDF as defined in the F key? Saving it as a text file with an .fdf extension, closing the document, and double-clicking the new .fdf, isn't really an appealing idea.
Our platform for this is Windows, using Word 2000. The target PDF can be local or on a webserver, whichever (if either) will work.
