Exact Forms Plus! is one of our most popular Add-on's designed to generate documents right from your Quickbase application. This Add-on allows you to create persistent, point-in-time MS Word or PDF documents.
Key features of Exact Forms Plus!
There are No Macros to download and install, use your version of Microsoft Word as is to create your Document Templates.

We use concepts similar to Exact Forms within the template building process; i.e. you reference data to be displayed in the document as: ~3~ or ~Record ID#~
You can choose to have the Exact Forms Plus! save documents to a file attachment field or to an alternate web based data storage repository such as Amazon S3
Allows for better control and formatting of data from your related tables. Specify how wide each column should be, Bold/Underline/Italicize data, change font style and size for each cell... and more.
Create multiple documents in 1 transaction. Pass in a Quickbase query that returns multiple records and Exact Forms Plus! will create multiple documents, one for each record returned and attach each individual document to its respective Quickbase record.
Uses Quick Base application tokens and User Tokens for increased security, not allowable with regular Exact Forms.
Allows for Word headers and footers to be used in your documents. Have your documents. Have your logo show up on every page along with data from your Quickbase table.
Create a single merged PDF document from multiple record transactions - you don't need print out each individual pdf with this feature, one file will include all pdf's for easy printing.
Exact Forms Plus is commonly used together with these Quickbase Add-ons:
Amazon S3 Basic - to reduce the amount of file attachment storage space your application consumes.

A customer needed to create a variable number of shipping labels from his Quickbase records. This example creates 4x6 labels with a specific pallet # printed on each.
