In an excisting PDF file I want to add one EXCEL value from a single cell. When the value in the cell is changed, I want to see the change also in the excisting PDF. Is that possible?

Hi,

 

Which platform are you on? as the approach will be different depending on that.

 

On windows, we can probably use VBA to achieve it

On Mac, probably Applescript,

 

But it would need to be coded, and it would also rely on the form/excel sheet not changing, or if it did you would have to update your script.

No, you can't connect an Excel file to a PDF directly in this way. The data from an Excel file can be read (even automatically) using a custom-made script, and then applied to a field in the PDF, but it will have to first be saved as a plain-text file.
