Hi All,

I am able to display a pdf file as:

<cfpdfform source="#filename#" action="populate" overwrite="yes"/>

But it shows this message:

"This pdf document contains forms. The filling of form fields is not supported."

How can I make the pdf file editable?

Thanks !

I know your frustration.  Two and a half weeks without so much as an acknowledgement of your question.

I would have answered your question, myself, except I've never worked with PDFs in ColdFusion outside of using CFDOCUMENT to dynamically build PDFs from database information.  I know nothing of forms in PDFs.  But I'll see what I can do.

Dang.. I was hoping I'd run into more links.  I'll keep looking and update this post as I progress.

HTH,

^_^
