    pdf form merge with mysql data

    Hi,

    Need to know if we can insert data stored on mysql into a preexisting pdf form using php and then save the pdf form with the the new data in it?

    If so how can it be done or if there are any resources that are availble on the web giving directions on it.

    Any help is appriciated.

    THank you

    and when you find the answer to this one, post it here because I'm curious to know....

    Actually, I'd like to know if there is a quick and easy way to take textual data stored in a .pdf and insert it into a MySQL database....Can you export text in .pdf's as Excel or CSV files?....anyone know the answer to this one?

    Now I know you can dynamically create PDF files on the fly with PHP as I've done it in the past but that was limited to text and graphics. I'm not sure if it is possible to use PHP to create a PDF with form elements in it like you can with Adobe Acrobat.

    You might be able to find something useful in these: http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Script...PDF/index.html
