Title

open iWork or Office (or PDFs) documents with data injected on it

Post

     Hi!

      

     I am not sure if there is any method that could be possible doing what I am looking for, in windows envoirment development  I can have my an app (done this with a windows native app) to open a word document and inject data on certain fields.

      

     I currently have a Filemaker Pro 12 app that generates documents with data pushed from database, but those document layouts are background PDFs with fields on top of it.

     What I am looking for is that I could call iWork (Page or Numbers) or Mac Office (Word or Excel) and inject data there.

      

     I think the route will be Mac Office, since late iWork Numbers and Pages version its crap because Apple now even cuted the AppleScript options to work with.

     Other options are maybe PDFs with fileds but dont know if PDF are "injectable"...

      

     I am looking for a good starting point (or best approach) or quit and let this work at it is.

      

      

     thanx
