Please help - trying to create action button on PDF page - need to export form data to XML not FDF
exportAsXML(); - nothing happens ...
exportAsFDF(); - exports OK but cannot import to my Excel XML map/scheme
exportAsXML doesn't work because it doesn't exist.
You can export to XFDF file (using exportAsXFDF), which is an XML representation of the form data.
thanks for your trouble, but I can only import XML not XFDF into my MS-Excel schema/map
currently I have to go to Acrobat's menus - More Form Option --> Export Data --> select XML as type
a bit cumbersome for my office staff
There's no built-in function that does that, but you can write one...
not my forte, thanks, hopefully someone will save the day
Take a look here, it mentions a package named XFDF2XL, which seems to do what you need. Look for message #12:
I’ve not used it, don’t know anything about it, but it came up in a Google search.
You should be able to convert XFDF to whatever flavor of XML Excel expects with some XSLT transforms.
