Topic: fdfAddTemplate Help Please
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 89308

I am trying to use fdfAddTemplate (ASP) to create and fill with data a new template for each record of a record set. The problem us this, my code never spawns the .pdf. It writes the buffer stream right into the browser window. I have double checked the path to the pdf and that the tempkate name exists IN that .pdf. I have a feeling that I am missing something very minor - I know I had this working before...

Anyway, below is my code:

Any help will be greatly appreciated:

code snippet:

Dim FdFAcX, objFdf
Dim rsList, DataConn, strSQL

Set FdfAcX = Server.CreateObject("FdfApp.FdfApp")
Set objFdf = FdfAcX.FDFCreate
Set rsList = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
Set DataConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

DataConn.Open DSNtemp

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM tblAddressBook WHERE LastName Like 'Shipe'"
rsList.Open strSQL, DataConn

'Loop through the recordset.
While Not(rsList.EOF)
'Add a "new" template. The "myTemplate" variable name must match the template name in the .PDF file being called.
objFdf.FDFAddTemplate true, "", "myTemplate", true

'Set variables
FirstName = rsList("FirstName") & ":"

custname = rsList("FirstName") & " " & rsList("LastName")
Address = rsList("Address1")
City = rsList("City")
ST = rsList("State")
Zip = rsList("Zip")
CityLine = rsList("City") & ", " & rsList("State") & " " & rsList("Zip")

'Set values - form field name, variable name, FALSE(if text)
objFdf.FDFSetValue "txtName", custname, False
objFdf.FDFSetValue "txtAddr", Address, False
objFdf.FDFSetValue "txtCityLine", CityLine, False
objFdf.FDFSetValue "txtFirst", FirstName, False
objFdf.FDFSetValue "txtAcct", Account, False

i = i + 1

'Write the data back to the buffer stream.
Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.fdf"
Response.BinaryWrite objFdf.FDFSaveToBuf

'Close the object and clean-up.
Set objFdf = Nothing
Set FdfAcX = Nothing

Set rsList = Nothing

Set DataConn = Nothing
