Fill out an existing PDF form using a Dataverse record in Model-Driven app

Hi there,

We have an official PDF template from the government that we need to complete based on some data. The values are in two Dataverse tables associated with a Model-Driven app.

I wonder how I can fill these PDF boxes automatically?

Hello @AmirZolf 

 

Yes you can do it. Actualy there is a Enterprise called Encodian that have an action called Fill a PDF Form with this you will be able to perfil the need that you have.

I have tried these and it seems not working with that governmental PDF, which is actually an XFA format. I even tried to convert it to a normal PDF, yet as it is a multi-page file, it didn't work either.

I never played with XFA formats. But looks like you have a really specific requirements that I understand that you have validated that there is nothing out of the box available in the Power Platform. So based on this I recomend you considering one of these following scenarios:

  • Create you custom connector with the needed custom code to perform the desired action.
  • For more integrated requirements you can create a PCF using JS framework. But this is the most complex way.
