Populate Pdf fields from excel userform or excel cells RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any macro to fill PDF form fields from excel userform or excel cells?

    I found some example but these requires using Adobe Acrobat, and my concern is about using the Reader only.

    Is this possible?

    Thank you

  • Hi Ahmed,

    Thanks for posting in MSDN forum.

    This forum is for developers discussing developing issues use Excel Object model to automate Excel application or devloping issues invoves Excel.

    Based on the description, you want to fill PDF form fields using VBA. In my option, the application need to able to edit the PDF form fileds, then you may can automate the application use code if the application expose the API.

    So, it may be impossible to use Reader to fill PDF form fileds. I also suggest that you get more effective response from Adobe.
