    Hi Faisal,

    This really depends on what products you have available to you. If you have Adobe LiveCycle Barcoded Forms ES then your process would look something like this:

    - Decode the PDF or TIF image to extract the data from the barcode
    - Convert the extracted data into XML so that it may be easily mapped to your form
    - Reformat the data into a format that can be used to pre-populate your form, or use the converted data as-is if the format is acceptable
    - Import the data into your form using the import data service

    Each of these steps is a single service in LC ES and are provided with the Barcoded Forms ES product.

    I was hoping someone could put me in the right direction here. I am basically doing the same . I am decodeing the information stored in a 2D Bar code and sending this information to an XML file, then I am trying to combine that xml file with a blank PDF template but the process is failing beacuse there are some additional tag fields the XML data from the  Decode->Extract XML process.


    The XML file from the decode process gives the structure below..notice therer some extra tags (lines 2- 4)


    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    <xdp:xdp xmlns:xdp="" xmlns:xfa="">





    The XML structure that is expected by the PDF template is as follows


    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>



    So the xml output of the Decode barcode + Extract XML process has three extra lines of tag. Is there a way I could use a process within liveCycle to clean out those three lines in real-time before sending the xml to be recombined with the PDF template.
