Is it possible to make the EO.PDF library work with fields that have the same name?

If you have multiple fields in a PDF with the same name, if you modify one field in Adobe Acrobat, it will update the other fields with the same name automatically. We need to preserve this in the PDF's that we merge data into, but it appears EO.PDF ignores fields if there is more than one element with the same name, rather than updating all instances of the field with that name.

Is there a way around this?

Thank you!

Dan

Hi,

Can you send us a test PDF file along with the code you use to write the file so that we can take a look? We will PM you as to where to send the test files.

Thanks!
