View Full Version : Help with information on auto-fill forms and printing them?

01-01-2006, 01:26 AM
My project is this. In my line of work we use a lot of forms. As of right now they are all hand written, a lot of duplication and triplication. I am trying to figure out how to create and print out the forms. My plan is this. I type the customer information in on one screen, and then be able to print any number of the forms that I want. I was thinking a seperate button for each form. example "Print Purchase Order" "Print Four Square" "Print We-Owe" etc.

What type of scripting language would I need for this. I am thinking that I can create the original form(with all of the customers information) and then each "print" link will have PHP Calls on the values that I want printed for the corresponding forms?

I am very new to this and it seems the more I learn, the more I realize that I know nothing.

Any help would be appreciated. If someone could just help me figure out what language I want to use for this.

One more thing. The customers will never see any of this. I am the only one who will use the application.

also, the information does not have to be saved. Once I print out all of the forms, it will have a reset, or clear form, function. I can figure that one out.

Thank you! and Happy New Year to All!
