How can I dynamically populate a Acroform document using Excel RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a pdf document that I have converted to a Acro-Form document with text input fields where I will need to auto-populate from some source. I want a user to login in to my site from a portal with their distinct user information, either click a link or click a form button that will display a user agreement with their individual information which they will sign electronically using DoscSign. This procedure will be new to our environment and each step has presented its own unique challenges.

    I have seen snippets of code while searching Google that may show how a particular step is accomplished in populating a text box in a Acroform file but nothing that tells or shows how I would populate a Acroform file from a xls file that can then be saved and sent in an email. I am not familiar with all that excel can do but I have used it to import data into a sql database or creating simple spreadsheets. I program in Coldfusion interacting with data from SQL and Access DB's. My knowledge of XL is quite limited but I do know some features.

    Can someone help me learn this procedure?

  • Hello Charlie,

    As far as I know, Excel Object Model does not provide any method to move populate data to an AcroForm document. I think your issue is more related to Adobe ColdFusion development and I would suggest you connect its support team for help. For the current thread, I will move it to Off-Topic forum. Thanks for understanding.
