Hello,

I'm sure this is not the answer you are looking for - but sure - this could be done if you have code that can manipulate a pdf. . .

If you have tools that let you build a pdf on the mainframe, why not simply re-create the whole pdf rather than trying to "pass" some data-file into an exsiting pdf.

The PDF has logo's and other things on it. the code that builds the PDF at our shop is via SAS.

I would not know where to start on doing everthing on the mainframe? ( but I'm more than willing to learn how )


can I pass the created PDF ontot the manframe and do some sort of linkup?

I wouldn't either, and would also be willing to learn icon_smile.gif

Is there maybe a way the "replace-able text" could be put on some web site or file-share and then a constant link embedded in the pdf? I realize this doesn't answer the exact question, but might be a way to get a similar result.

None of my clients have yet created pdf files with their "own code". Yet. . . but i suspect it is coming.
