    There are a number of things that have to be set up correctly for a stamp to work as a dynamic stamp, form the template name to the calculation script. If you provide the details of how you set the stamp PDF, it would help, as would the following book which has all the information you need: www.amazon.com/About-Stamps-Acrobat®-Paperless-Workflows/dp/098561470 6/

    That tutorial isn't quite complete. What version of Acrobat are you using?

    For the text field that you placed on the stamp page, what did you use for the calculation script?

    Did you add the field to that stamp file after you added your new stamp page to it, or before? You need to add the field after you have added the page to the stamp file.

    In post #2 above, you list six steps. Step #2 needs to come after step #5. After adding your custom stamp page (my-stamp.pdf), you have to find the stamp file in your stamps folder and then add the text field, not before. This is described in steps 10 and 11 in the tutorial you linked to earlier.
