Custom Objects: Current Date and Spreadsheet

Mar 11, 2012 8:49 AM

On an otherwise normally functioning form, there are two custom objects, both Current Date fields, which do not appear at all

when I Merge Data Files into Spreadsheet in Acrobat X Pro. Both fields are set to Calculated-Read Only and Runtime Property

of Current Date/Time. Is there a way to include the Current Date/Time value when the file is merged into a spreadsheet, maybe

with the script editor? And why doesn't a Current Date field show up in a spreadsheet?

    Check that the two objects are set to a Name/Mormal binding in the Object > Binding palette. In addition, I am not sure if Master Page objects get exported to a spreadsheet. You would need to test.

    Once an object's binding is set to Name/Normal, then it should participate in the export to the spreadsheet. If you drag on a CurrentDate object from the Custom Library; select it and go to the Object > Binding palette, you will see that the binding is set to None/No data binding.


    If you want an object to export, you must set the binding.
