Sorry, I meant fill the form with SendKeys :)
Well, both demoes on my website auto-fill a PDF form. None of them use SendKeys. So, you should be able to use either one, depending on whether client #2 has Acrobat Pro or not. Correct?

Thank you.
So, I guess you can only use the first demo that uses the XFDF approach. Will that work for you?

you can download Foxit's Denube SDK, so you don't need Acrobat Pro to fill the fillable-pdf.

I'm in the Army and we still manage property using archaic paper based forms from the 1980s. Fortunately these forms have transitioned over to PDFs and can use digital signatures (which is another key feature of the PDF that we need). I am unfamiliar with Crystal Reports but even if I did familiarize myself with it, I'd have a long road of trying to get it authorized for use on our networks. MS Office and Acrobat is already in our baseline image.

The video below is version 1 of the project I'm updating now. This will be version 3 and PDF filling will be part of it.

Updated Demo video with version 3 below, all forms are filled and digitally signable PDFs
