I have a fillable pdf document that I did not create.

I been asked if I can place data into it from my database.

Looks as if it should be simple.  However I do need to know or be able to name the fields (cells) that will contain the data.

Does anyone know how I can find out the fields names?  Or at least give them names?

Once I have these I would need to open the pdf - any advice here would be welcome as to which application  and then assign values to the named fields.

Pointers in the direction of how to do this would be welcomed.

Jim
