Flatten a PDF file from Excel
I’m populating a PDF form from Excel by creating a FDF file, once I finish I need to flatten it.
Is there any way to accomplish this without having Adobe Acrobat?
Reader cannot flatten a document, if that's what you're asking. A user with Acrobat installed can, in which case you can use VBA to control Acrobat. For exampe: http://www.khk.net/wordpress/2009/03/04/adobe-acrobat-and-vba-an-introduction/
