Automating Report Writing with Microsoft Office

I write compliance reports for work. I fill in a PDF form and click 'Yes' or 'No' to indicate whether the company is in compliance with a particular statute. I would like to have this form autopopulate my compliance report in Word with the company's name and the appropriate findings and corrective actions. Is this possible? If not, can I achieve this using other Microsoft Office applications? Thanks!

Yes, it is possible, but PDF viewer itself cannot run arbitrary code for security reasons. If you organize things with certain conventions, then, after you make a change to PDF, you can save it, and then run another script which would then do what you want. I would recommend Python as the scripting language.

Please tell us more about your compliance reports - are they currently open as you change stuff? Can they be re0built from scratch or only updated with relevant changes?,18168,26637,26792&sugexp=ldymls&xhr=t&q=python+read+pdf&cp=13&pf=p&sclient=psy&safe=off&aq=f&aqi=g4g-o1&aql=&oq=python+read+p&gs_rfai=&pbx=1&fp=5a996d56de453056
