My company previously used a Savo-based document repository. One nice feature was that I could create a PDF and drop in a token (<%SAVO.user.lastname%>) that forced the user's last name to appear on the front page of the document.

We no longer use Savo, and our new document repository doesn't support this feature. Has anyone seen this type of funcitonality in Sharepoint or in antoher system? Or inherently in Acrobat? It must be the name of the user who is downloading the document so that each version is customized with the name of the person who is using the document.

I am open to any ideas that are not too costly and that allow the documents to stay securely behind our firewall.
