Is it possible to add fields to a PDF document, and then use the entries in
these fields later in the document?

What I want is the capability for the user to enter values in a table at
the beginning of the document, then those values would be repeated within
procedures later in the doc. For example, the user would enter the URL for
their website into a field a table at the beginning of the document, and
later in the document rather than say "Enter the URL for your website" the
document would read "Enter the URL for your website: www.bigfirm.com".

Obviously the first field would be editable, but the second one should be


Building 3 Eastern Business Park,
Wern Fawr Lane,
St Mellons,
