Well maybe not a mail merge in the classic sense.
I need to have one form filled out with three hundred different names. The form is a letter with just "Dear " in it and I need to add the name, "Dear John", "Dear Jane", etc,
I have 300 names and I want to know if I can script the PDF file to read from an XML file (or something else?) and populate this form 300 times. Is it possible to do anything like this?
Yes, it is possible. I have done exactly that with Acrobat 6.0. However, I am trying to get it to work with Acrobat Professional 9.0 & 10.0. Since I scripted it already, my question posted on December 1, 2010 is more specific.
Another suggestion would be to use Adobe LiveCyle and create your form there. I believe LiveCycle has the ability to do what you want, but I do not know how.
