    Supply form filling data to an existing PDF


      Is it possible to supply form filling data to an existing PDF on the fly?

      The situation is as following:
      - I've got an existing PDF with form fields, one that I did not create myself and am unable to alter.
      - The information that should be filled in the form fields is already available in a database.

      What I'd like to do is provide the user with a PDF open/download link on my site. This opens the PDF with the values from the database filled in the form fields within the PDF. This way the user only has to print the document not having to fill in the complete form. Is this possible? Using the 'object' element parameters to specify a FDF file or the individual values comes to mind but I don't know if this is supported by Reader and in what way.

      Many thanks in advance.
