This may be an Acrobat question, but I'll start here.
I am trying to do a mail merge using CF <cfpdfform tag.
I have a query with 100 records that loops through the PDF with these form fields.
My query loops through and adds/inserts the query values to each PDF and creates 100 pdf's with the filled in values.
Because I don't need to worry about the length of any of these values, It works great.
But here is where I have my issue
When the query value is within a sentence I don't know how large to make the text field on my blank fill in PDF
When the city name is Ida the field needs to be a certain width and when the city name is Oklahoma City it needs to be a much larger width..
Is there a way to deal with this?
ShouldI be using a different way to merge query data with these PDFs?
just to make sure I understand it correctly, you are merging 2 mails using cfpdfform tag?
No. Its one mail/letter. What I showed with the images is 2 parts of the same letter.
One part the date, name, address, city state, and zip populates great because they are not within a sentence.
But when the fill-in field is within a sentence I have issues due to the varying length of the city & state fields.
Replace that paragraph with a blank multi-line text box, and build the string for the paragraph programmatically. Then populate the multi-line text box with that string. PDF will take care of word-wrapping inside the text box.
