Why not create a PDF form/file that the technicians fill out from the beginning. Then they can submit the data (or the entire pdf) and then send hem to records retention as a PDF.
Because the form is just a small part of a bigger system. The data entered on the web app is used for other processes, We don't have the choice of changing that app.
So you could use PDF/G to generate the PDF. You could use Assembler to overlay a page on top of the dock, or simply use a watermark to add to the PDF document (this will be dependant on how much information you want to add). Note that when you create the PDF it is not a form but just a PDF with no fillable fields.
Thanks for your reply Paul.
As I said in my original post I'm totally new to this so any link you could send me to example code would be extremely helpful.
I do understand that it wouldn't actually be a form. As long as it's something I can read in and parse/modify before writing out to a new PDF it will suit my needs.
The part you want to look at is LiveCycle Assembler ...there should be plenty of info on the devnet site.
