AutoMailMerge Plug-in

By EverMap Company Free to try

Developer's Description

AutoMailMerge is an advanced plug-in for Adobe Acrobat software for performing mail merge processing. Mail merge is a computer term describing the production of multiple (and potentially large numbers of) documents from a single template form and a structured data source. This technique is used to create personalized letters, documents, bills and pre-addressed envelopes or mailing labels for mass mailings (or document creation) from a database of names and addresses. You use mail merge when you want to create a set of documents that are essentially the same but where each document contains unique elements. Creating each letter, message, bill, statement, fax, label, envelope, or coupon individually would take hours. That's where mail merge comes in. Using mail merge, all you have to do is create one PDF document that contains the information that is the same in each version. Then you just add some fillable form fields for the information that is unique to each version. The plug-in uses PDF form as a template and takes input from a variety of data sources to fill form fields and generate documents. AutoMailMerge provides a complete solution for mass creation of PDF documents from variety of data sources. Output PDF documents can be optionally secured with individual passwords and e-mailed to the recipients. The plug-in supports a variety of different data sources such as ODBC-compliant databases (Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel, dBase, Paradox, MS SQL Server, Oracle and almost any existing commercial and open-source database comes with ODBC driver), Excel spreadsheets, XML documents, comma and tab-delimited ASCII text files. The software reads data records (in case of text files - text lines) and fills forms fields of the template PDF form. New PDF file is spawned for each input data record to create a personalized PDF document. Any PDF document that has fillable form fields can be used as a mail merge template. Output PDF documents are saved into output folder and optionally emailed to the recipients using email addresses retrieved from each data record.
