How to change xml format when saving .pdf to .xml ??

 

I want to change the xml foramt ...

 

I have many pdf documents to transfor as .xml 

the format is defined by ourselfs

 

I use Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional.

 

I see a XML-1-00.xml in \Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Acrobat\plug_ins\SaveAsXML\MappingTables .

 

I think I can change the format in this file.

    You must be working with a LieCycle form, please use one of those forums.

    For LiveCycle qustions, click on http://forums.adobe.com/, go to LiveCycle, then perhaps LiveCycle Designer. But maybe it isn't Designer here.

     

    However, I think nobody would do this by changing Acrobat. The industry standard way to change XML is an XSL transfomation (XSLT).

    I understand you want to change PDF to XML. But you can already change PDF to a different XML. Then you can use the normal method of XSLT to change that XML into the XML you want.

    You might not be able to change the format. The PDF XML export has been criticised for being rather limited, especially for untagged files. But if the information is in the Acrobat XML, XSLT will convert the format.

     

    XSLT is essential knowledge for any XML professional. There are many books about it.

    Sorry, I have no idea whether this will be possible. It will need detailed analysis and full understanding of every XML tag in both of the formats and their relationship to each other. This is an interesting project, but not a small one.
