[prMac.com] The product pdf-FieldMerge is particularly aimed at users, who want to generate individualised PDF forms easily. PDF forms can be filled or corrected in predefined fields, but by request they also include a multitude of fixed information, like for example customers' master data, which can not be changed. These "personalised" PDF forms can not be generated from a word processing software, but they require special solutions - particularly when it is about many data records.
From the most varying data sources, like e.g. Excel, data bases, files in FDF and X/FDF format or from external applications, pdf-FieldMerge fills PDF form files with any number of data records at the touch of a button. The rest of the manual filling can then be done without any problems by the free Adobe Reader.
Whether text, figures or pictures are to be processed - pdf-FieldMerge combines a data source with a PDF form template and places the requested information to the appropriate positions in the document. In addition, the rights of the form fields, like write protection etc., can be set automatically during processing or the conversion of a form field into text can be done.
Besides that, the newest version 5.0 is providing an again noticeably simplified handling, so that now even laypersons quickly reach the desired results in the easiest way. Tailored to the requirements of the banking and insurance sector with extremely high numbers of customers, pdf-FieldMerge is now also going to process an optionally large number of data records very much faster in one process.
pdf-FieldMerge is suitable for the use at single PCs, servers, as well as for running at Web providers and for the integration into one's own applications. The program is available for Windows 98 and later, MacOSX and Linux, and costs $122.00. A free test version is available for download at www.pdf-office.com
