    Populate Form Field with Data Stored in Excel File

    Ayreonautic Level 1

      I'm trying to find a way to populate a form field by pulling data from an excel file that gets frequently updated. This will be used for a tracking number that will be incremented when new products are released so anyone can know what number to use by just opening the PDF form.


      For example, the excel file will have the number "1278" as the last number in Column B, so when the PDF is opened the field will have the number "1278." Whenever someone adds to the excel file and opens a new PDF, the last number will be filled in for them.


      Is this even possible? I heard you can do it with exporting the excel file but I don't want that to be necessary every time it is used.


      Thanks so much!
