Use webservice and Word-Template to write data to databasetable


Is there a way to use a Word-Template (Account -> Attachments -> With Template) as a questionaire to write information (e.g. with checkboxes) to a database table?

I saw this once with Adobe Forms.

I would be very thankful if sb could give me some advice here.

Thanks a lot in advance.

    A clear distinction between the two technologies, Word Templates and Adobe Interactive Forms need to be made. Although they both use the Service Oriented Architecture via webservices this does not mean that they both offer the same functionalities.

    Word templates are "read-only", they can only be used to display data coming from a system.

    Adobe Interactive Forms can read, change and create (change and create = write).

    In short, the functionality you require is only available for Adobe Interactive Forms. Keep in mind that if you choose to use Adobe Interactive Forms you require an additional (quite expensive) license, no matter how many forms you'll use.

    Hope this helps,

    • Hi. Can you please tell me, what kind of licence are you talking about. Because I created one adobe form with adobe lifecycle manager and the form is getting filled via web service, but I can enter additional data manualy. I guess this could be related with licence, but don't know which licence do I need.
