Is this for

- personal use on your own workstation as an interactive tool

- personal use in a background task (not networked)

- use by other people who will each have Acrobat Pro

- use by other people without Acrobat Pro

- use on a web server to deliver PDF on demand

- something else

The application will be used just by me with my Adobe arcade pro account and will not be a Web application.  Just need the ability to write my report in my  Desktop application and  when ready the able to view and edit my report and PDF form with my text and pictures Inserted into there pre determenad  locations on the document.  This would allow me to utilize all the features that adobe arcade pro has to offer.

Ok, do you always want to make this new document from a Word document that you have already saved? Or something else?

No I would like to just use Adobe . I just need to make 1PDF template and be able to reference in my code where my text in pictures will be inserted . From there I can save that report and  Use that same template for the next report.

That would be much harder than using Word. It’s sometimes done on servers for performance reasons (but not with Acrobat). If you want to do it with Acrobat you would need detailed PDF internals knowledge and to write a C++ plugin.

The best way to do this is with form fields.  Text fields for text and buttons for images. You can use the IAC in Acrobat Pro from C# to build the report from your template doc.
