How to export xml from PDF form in adobe reader?

Oct 17, 2012 4:50 AM

Hi Every one!


I need to export xml from PDF form using Adobe reader. Can any one help me on this?


Actually Adobe acrobat having built-in option as "Export XML". But in reader there is no option like that. But I can able to get the exported XML using submit button. But without using button/Adobe work bench what are all the possibilities to get it?


Please help me on this.

    "Export data" is an 'Extended' feature, It wont be existed in Reader Functionality. To get the feature in Adobe reader the form should be "Reader Extended". with "ReaderExtensions" module check the property of "Import and export form data" option, then only form can get this feature. Acrobat has some of the "Extended" features in-built.Without using Acrobat or applying "ReaderExtensions", may not get this feature.


    Please check this thread for email option for export data: .

    Converting a PDF file to XML means the text from the PDF will be extracted. If you want to transport or store the text from a document without the formatting, then you should export to XML.



      1. Click “Save” to save a copy of your PDF file as an HTML formatted document.
      2. Double-click on your PDF document to open it in Adobe Reader 9.
      3. Click “File.” Click “Save a Copy” from within the Adobe Reader 9 file menu.
      4. Select “HTML” from the drop down menu on screen within Adobe Reader 9.

    As long as the "additional static code" is assigned to a field(for ex: textfield rawvalue) before calling export, it will get exported to the xml. If this is not the case may be need more details on what you are trying to do.
