populate a PDF then download the file

Hi, I am wanting to download a file (pdf) that has been populated with data. I have no touble with the data and can extract from a recordset and display on the screen. I am familar with DF pro and can download a file.

I need to go a step further and have the data populate a PDF.

I have seen this before, where you can enter your name in a form field then hit download to recieve a poster with your name on it.

Any clues to how this could be achieved?

you can create PHP scripting that will create the pdf file for you.

I found this link:

through a quick google search:

Once you have created the PDF file, you can use DFP to download it.
