Can someone Help me please - Post ID 869
Sample scripts would be nice i am new to all this but the pdf form has 42 field that go into one table on a database.
Can you provide us with a link to an example PDF file?
Maybe if we see what you are working with, someone might have an idea what it will take to get it done. I also don't believe that CoffeeCup has a software that will convert the PDF output to Mysql, but they do have a form builder software that has the ability to save the data to a Mysql database. I would suggest giving the free "trial" software a shot. I think it gives you a couple of weeks to try it out before paying for it.
You could try making the form fields in Form Builder and see if you can get it to load to your Mysql database to replace the PDF file. Might be worth a shot.
www.mainsites.ca is my website, and yes, some of it is crappy.
Thanks again for the reply
...When you send a PDF form through email it creates an xml document with only the field information...
There's your answer i think - look for a script to grab data from the xml file to the db...
