Messy form solution

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

My web-form process input and sends it to me as mail. Fine. But I also would  
love to have this input put onto a PDF-document which will be generated on  
the fly during post. The PDF will be saved on my server AND mailed to  
I thought that maybe it is possible to get the posted form input on a  
csv-file on my web-server (I don't have MySQL). And then, during the process  
get this csv data reorganised and to appear organised on a already nearly  
finished PDF with prefixed header and footer. The document is mailed to me  
and visible in the user window.
I have not invented the power and have to ask: is this possible, anyone who  
knows if such a funcationality already exist?

If you haven't already, have a look at I don't see why a
script couldn't accomplish both tasks at the same time.

Just remember to lock access to the file, you don't want two simultaneous
requests clobbering the file.

Look in to FPDI:

That imports an existing PDF in to an FPDF object ready to add new

It's possible using many ways of creating PDFs from PHP.  Personally I've
been a fan of PDF4PHP, but you can't import your "nearly finished PDF" in
to that, so if I were you I'd look into FPDI.
