I want to create a site for attorneys and users who does a lot of legal paperwork. It saves their common information in database - think of first name, last name, address, license number etc. Thereafter, any form that needs such information will be auto-populated.
Here's on such form:
Seems like all such government forms are protected with owner password. Can someone please shade light on how can I achieve this goal?
This would be extremely difficult to do, bordering on impossible, I think. It would only work if the files allow importing data without removing the Reader Rights applied to them (like the one you shared) AND if the field names in all of those files are the same, which they are very unlikely to be. Short of that you would need to write some kind of AI-algorithm to identify where to insert each piece of information...
Or you would need to create a mapping for each individual form...
Yes. Mapping fields for each forms is what my intent. Let's say ID of first name field in g-28 form is "g_28_fn" and my database field name is simply "first_name". I would have mapping for form g-28 stores as
But, what I don't know is how to figure out all the field IDs in G-28 form without knowing owner password?
thank you for replying!
Normally you would enter Prepare Form mode and see it directly, but this is a special kind of PDF file, created in LiveCycle Designer, not Acrobat, so it can only be edited in that application. Many official forms are like this, which makes it much more difficult to work with them.
