There are a couple of ways you could do it with Designer.
One would be to have the form connect ask the user for their name, and then connect to a web service and populate the form's information from that... Another would be to use the LiveCycle server products to create a PDF from the result of merging the form and the data and send that out.
These sound like they might be overkill for your application, if this is a one-time thing.
One way you could do it would be to use something like Word's mail merge to generate a cover page with their current information, and include a change of address form and mail them both out.
Thanks. I was thinking of enabling commenting on the forms created from
InDesign. Would that work maybe?
Whatever I do is there a way to automate the emailing, or file naming
based on unique data in each form.
Everything seems to suggest this is a database project, but the reason
I'm doing it is because the database folks are too busy with more
important things to implement this. I'm supposed to come up with a
I have the same need, here are inexpensive products you can use (this is based on having a multi page pdf with the data for each unique instance on its own page.
Firstly, you can use A-PDF Page Cut [$27] (http://a-pdf.com/page-cut/index.htm ) to break up your half pages PDF file; then use A-PDF Merger (http://a-pdf.com/merger/index.htm [also $27]) to merge two PDF files together; lastly, use A-PDF AutoMail (http://a-pdf.com/automail/index.htm [$49]) to send all PDF files to your recipients at the same time based on extract mail addresses from PDF files.
