Combining/Appending a PDF file created outside of FM Pro


Recommended Posts

My app creates a new PDF.  I want the app to append to this new PDF another PDF that is stored on the database but was created outside of FM Pro.  The Save Records as PDF (with Append) function does not seem to apply in this situation.

I'm looking for suggestions on how I might implement this functionality within FM Pro 18.  The app is a standalone app running on Windows 10.

Thank you.

True, you can append your export to an existing PDF, not the other way around. For this you need either a plugin or a 3rd party application or API.

Thanks for the help.  Base Elements was the solution.  Had to work through the file reference difference between BE and FMP.  Once that was resolved, it worked perfectly.
