thanks for this and also the other links from you all, i managed to get a server behaviour for dreamweaver for excel which made it simple for me, however i will look at this for the pdf part as that is something i would like to incorporate.
The requirement has slightly changed from what i had originally thought.
I have looked at all the links and other docs on net but this exports the html page to pdf.
What i need to do is:
On my page i have quite a long application form. i need to prepopulate the info from the mysql database after it has been inserted to a pdf doc which has all the questions on it and the answers come from the database.
so basically in my app currently you can view the clients details from the inserted form which is fine, but how can i click a button which then adds the data into a pdf document?
i looked at other solutions on net which talk about other fdf files but not sure if that is the best way to go.
if anyone has any experience of implementing something i would appreciate and opinions on it.
Not clear on your problem. Is this an update process where you want to display the data, allow changes and then create a new PDF? If that is the case why get complicated and try to change the existing PDF? Just create a new one and overwrite the old one (or create it under whatever name the user chooses)? If I am misunderstanding the situation then you need to explain it better.
