I have a template form I built in Acrobat Pro DC. I have a date field that auto populates the date when the document is open. What I want to do is have that date stay once the document is saved so we know the date it was created.
Example document opned today 1/24/2021 Saved with a new file name and then sent on its way. The next person recieveing it opens it 1/25/2021 I want the date to still ready 1/24/2021.
I know I can leave it to manual entry but was hoping there was a way to have it auto populate and then stay static the rest of the time.
Post your current code and we'll help you adjust it to achieve that.
Here is what i have in the properites of the Today text box in the Calculate field
I found this online
var f = this.getField("Today");
f.value = util.printd("mm/dd/yyyy", new Date());
Change the second line to:
if (f.valueAsString=="") f.value = util.printd("mm/dd/yyyy", new Date());
OK will do.. Will let you know if it works. Also is there a way to compress the form then its 2 mb 1 page all fillable with drop downs and check boxes
