Print Data and PDF as one document

Question asked by programm on Aug 4, 2017

Task: To create a report for printing containing on the first and second page FileMaker-Data, on the following pages external PDFs.

Plattform: FileMaker 16 on Windows 10

 

Problem

At present we have 4 different documents that are printed all separately. This takes up to 10 minutes! Some are generated by FileMaker, some are PDFs.

I have tried to create a report, with the FileMaker-data on the first and second page, which was of course no problem. However, my idea to place interactive container on the following pages did not work. The PDFs are shown in the browse mode but not in the preview mode (--> PDF container not previewing or printing ).

 

Is there a way to generate a report that contains external PDFs?

Is there a way to display and print interactive container fields?

 

I do not want to generate a PDF first from FileMaker and add the external PDFs somehow. There should be a more straight forward way.

 

Thanks for any help.
