    Autofill/Create multiple pdf forms from 1 xml data file

    Patrick.Aldridge Level 1

      I have Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES 8.2, Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro, and very little experience with JavaScript.

       

      I have created an interactive form in LiveCycle with form fields which I want to use as a template.  I also have a set of data (eg.spreadsheet), containing data on different customers.

       

      What I want to be able to do is automatically create and populate the pdf with the data sets in the spreadsheet. Does anybody know of a function in either of these programs or other programs that can do this..?

       

      I have explored the function in Acrobat that lets you fill the form based on an xml file, and this is what I want to do but on a much larger scale and produce lots of individual pdfs with each of the different sets of data.  I know how to merge multiple xml files into one xml file, which I figure will be a part of it.

       

      Any help would me much appreciated, even pointing me in the direction of a potentially more appropriate forum.

       

      Thanks in advance!
