    Adobe


    Trying to create a pdf form. I am able to do this in adobe, but I am having
    no such luck trying to automate adobe and build the pdf. Not sure if anyone
    has done this or knows where I can pick up a book to learn about it. Not
    sure if that is even possible. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I've used Acrobat to read from and write to a PDF form, but have never
    created one using anything but Acrobat. There was a good series of articles
    written by Rick Schummer in FoxPro Advisor on the topic, but again he was
    addressing a form that was already created, not creating one through
    automation...

    In addition to the FoxTalk articles Kris mentioned, Rick also wrote
    about PDF's in the book "MegaFox: 1002 Things You Wanted to Know about
    Extending Visual FoxPro", www.hentzenwerke.com.

    Both Tamar and Kristyne have mentioned Rick's work in both FoxTalk and
    MegaFox. The PDF chapter from MegaFox is available as a free sample chapter
    at www.hentzenwerke.com
