Could you please help? I'm really in great trouble. I believe, people here knows what I want. Please help.
Even I can afford with some EXE that takes the FDF path, PDF paths as argument and generates the complete PDF from command line. I'll call PHP exec() function to work with such an EXE. I tried PDFTK. But it never worked properly with my Acrobat 8/9 forms.
The only reason I am responding to this post is because the poster sent me a request through the forum message system asking for my help.
Although I did populate PDFs with FDF data generated by web forms a year or so ago, I have since abandoned that kind of solution. It was a big headache. I found it far more stable and flexible to use html, php and css to populate forms that are almost as nice looking as PDFs.
So my advice is, if you can possibly avoid going the FDF/PDF route, you will be better off.
