Im a Sales Person for the company that i work for and the current way of generating proposals takes at least an hour, my boss and I are trying to create a PDF to expidite this proccess. There are a list of 4 appendices that would possibly need to be added to the PDF based off of Customer Selection. I've added a list box that allows multiple selections that contains the four Appendices, is there any way to use the list box in a way that will make the pdf attatch these files based off of the selection in the list box? IE If appendices 1,3, and 4 are selected, id like the pdf to attatch only 1 3 and 4. Is this Possible ?

Yes, but it would require developing a custom-made script and installing it on the local computer for it to be able to attach the files. Also, the file paths will have to be hard-coded into it, of course.

This is not a trivial task, though. If you're interested in hiring a professional to do it for you feel free to contact me privately (click my username and then on "Send a message") to discuss it further.
