That's a neat idea... It should be possible to do it, yes, but it would require using Acrobat and possibly installing a script on the local machine. Basically it would involve creating a text file attachment (a "data object") and then reading and setting its value based on the form fields in the file.

If you're interested in someone developing it for you, feel free to contact me privately (try6767 at gmail.com) to discuss it further.
