I am comparing FoxIT to Acrobat for a automatic form generation and esignature solution. FoxIt seems to be winning. So I have been able to take a form in FoxIt and use there export to xfdf tool so I know I have an xfdf doc that is acceptable to FoxIt. I then fill that xfdf doc via VBA code in MS Access. I don't see any similar functionality in Acrobat. Am I missing something?
In Adobe Pro you can export form data as xfdf file.
At Tools search for "export data"
Tools - Forms - More - Export Data, change "Save as Type" to "Acrobat XFDF Files".
Got it. Thanks. If I wanted to pull this off in VBA - open xfdf file, fill xfdf file, then import xfdf file to the pdf form, any clues as to what (Adobe Acrobat 10 Type Library, Adobe Distaller, Adobe Access 3.0 Type Library) library I need to reference?
Sorry, I don't work in VBA any longer. I find it to be an extremely cumbersome programming language. Try the Acrobat SDK forum, perhaps.
And if you run it from a trusted context you can even specify the path of the XFDF file with the data, like this:
Hmm, yes I don't have much love for MS Access and VBA but it is the database I am stuck with at present.
