Pass variable into Acrobat form similar to passing variable into Word document

We use an Acrobat form as our Engineering Change document. I am trying to figure out how to pass variable information from our data card and template input form into the Acrobat form in a similar manner as you would say with a Word document. In other words, we fill out a field in the data card for the variable "Description". I would like that same information to pass on to the Acrobat form where we have a text box for the description. Acrobat PDF does have the ability to create custom properties, but I have been unable to get EPDM variable "Description" to pass the value into the PDF file. Any ideas?

Thank you,
