Much easier way to create PDFs with PHP - create pdf phpHow To: Create PDF With Php

I have just come across a new project that allows you to generate PDF, DOCX and DOC files with PHP. AllYou have to do, is create a template in Open Office (or Word). In theTemplate, you create the layout of the document and insert a number ofText fields. These text fields are then populated with data from PHPAnd the document can be saved as a PDF file or in any other supportedFormat. The concept is good old "mail-merge".http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/FromThe web sites' blurb: "phpLiveDocx allows developers to generateDocuments by combining structured data from PHP with a template,Created in a word processor. The resulting document can be saved as aPDF, DOCX, DOC or RTF file."I am currently adding phpLiveDocxTo an online store I am working on. The customer wants his store toCreate an invoice and sent it by e-mail as a PDF attachment. TheInvoice should use the same template file that is used in the internalAccounting software (which is a DOC file).phpLiveDocx works well and it is much easier to get good results than with FPDF, TCPDF or Zend_Pdf.Download here:http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/Have fun :-)Leo
