Auto fill multiple forms

I am supporting a mental health therapist with her website. I have created several pdfs to Adobe download and fill-in forms. I have noticed that there is so much duplicated information on these 7 forms and wonder how I can streamline the process without retaining information in a database. Is there a way to have one form fill in information already entered in another form?

There are many ways to achieve this.

 

I personally would recommend to employ a workflow with Adobe Sign.

 

As the creator of your PDFs, it allows you to reuse a template (pre-filled) from a master PDF document, for example;  and publish it online as a PDF webform that the users can fill-in, sign and send.

 

Otherwise if this doesn't answer your question, are you trying to connect your Acrobat forms to  an SQL server? 

 

You will need to employ a JavaScript workflow which is explained in greater detail in the "Developing Acrobat Applications Using JavaScript" guide, chapter 14 -"Interacting with Databases", Pages 188-192.

 

Also, look in chapter 15, SOAP and Web Services, if this is also something that you're considering.
