Embed files in PDF

Postby awells12 on Mon Jul 31, 2017 11:42 am

Hello all,

I'm creating an internal installation guide for one of my company's products and need to find a way to embed a couple of SQL scripts into the PDF that the user can click on to open in a text editor. The closest I've gotten so far is to add the SQL files to my Flare project and create hyperlinks in the PDF. The problem with that is that the SQL files are included in the output and have to be in the same directory as the PDF or else the links are broken.

Is there a way I can embed the SQL files directly into the PDF file so that I don't need to worry about the external files?

UPDATE: I've figured out how to add the SQL files as an attachment in the PDF after it has been built. Does anyone know of a way I can include the attachments in the build?

Nope :( this document is for internal use in my company, so the best solution I've found so far is to host the SQL file on an internal SharePoint site and put a hyperlink to it in the document.
