Thank you James and Glenn for your help.
I tried to do what you both said.
I renamed the TextField4 to SubmitbyEmail then changed the email address. When I try to save it, it says failed and gives me a warning.. What am I doing wrong?
I'm new to Acrobat Professional. I'm using Acrobat 8 Professional Trial version and able to configure it to submit a PDF form via email. However, when I opened the submitted form with Adobe Reader 7. The filled-in data were gone. Only the radio button selection was reserved. How do I fix this?
Nicole...I've had a similar problem with users who submit the form via 7.0, the form seems to not retain the data. I just have them update to Reader 8.0.
David....I'm unsure how to change the file name when emailing the form. I think the route to take is to figure out how to programmatically save the file with the preferred file name first and then email the form.
I have created a form in Livecycle Designer via Acrobat Pro 8. I have installed 3 email buttons inside the form for the document to be forwarded and reviewed/approved by various people. I need to have the whole form, as a PDF, emailed as an attachment. I don't want to XML data alone to be emailed.
I have seen a form do this. A gentleman, who i believe works for Adobe, sent me a sample form with the email button that, when clicked, attached the PDF file to the outgoing email, so i know it can be done.
I just realized the problem is not only with Adobe Reader 7.
The data submitted to my form still gets reset even I inserted data to the form using Adobe Pro 8 and saved it. Do you have any suggestion how to resolve this problem?
Thanks in advance!
I am also having a problem saving the data in PDF forms.
I created a form using LiveCycle Designer. If I open the published/distributed form on my computer I am able to save the form and the data. My husband also has no problem on his computer (he also has Adobe 8 professional). However, when others without Adobe 8 professional open the form they receive a message that the data in this form cannot be saved and they must print the completed form (they have Adobe Reader 7.0).
I have tried using the Publish to Repository and the Distribute Form (save and send later) options. Neither solve my problem.
I have closed it and opened it in Acrobat 8 Professional, Clicked on ADVANCED, and then ENABLE USAGE RIGHTS. BUT . . . I get the message: "This document could not be reader enabled"
My goal is to create a form that can be saved by the user and uploaded to a facilitator in an online course once completed.
I tried this procedure to return the form to two email addresses, but it still does not work. It will accept two addresses if I enter them as firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com (separated by only a comma or semi-colon), but it only composes the email to the second email address. Any help is appreciated.
Can you be more specific as to what procedure you are using to return the form to two email addresses? Is it during the Distribute form wizard? In the distribute form wizard the first email address it requests is who will be gathering the data. It will not accept more than one email address.
The next email address the Distribute form wizard requests is who the form will be distributed to. This step allows multiple email addresses.
Thank you all for posting excellent info here.<br />I'm using Designer 7, and have successfully used Chris's script to send xml data back to myself fom a pdf I emailed to my coworkers.<br /><br />Does anyone know how I can attach a stylesheet to the xml data before it's sent so that when I open the xml file in Excel, it's formatted by the stylesheet?<br /><br />Currently, I can open each xml attachment and add the code for the stylesheet, like this:<br /><br /><?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><br /><?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="HotelForm_style.xsl" ?><br /><br /><form1<br /><br />--but I'd like for the stylesheet to be auto-added to the form or applied at some point, so that I can just open the attachments and not have to add code and resave.<br /><br />Any ideas on how to do this in Designer 7?<br /><br />Thanks in advance,<br />Kris
Hi. I am new to Adobe 8 Professional. I have created a form and enabled the "Submit by Email" button, however, when I fill out the form and I click that button, the form goes into my Outlook as an Email message, but the attachment is in xml format rather than pdf. Does anyone know how to keep it as a pdf file?
I noticed that alot of people have asked about having the "submit" or "submit by email" buttons to be sent as a PDF. Is there anyway that the "submit" or "submit by email" button can send as as XLS, TXT or CSV file?
I'm not sure if there are issues with people using older versions of adobe, but reader 8.0 is free to download so I've pushed the link to everyone within my company along with the pdf documents.
As for the button, if you insert a Button (the one actually named Button) right click on it, go to Palettes and select objects. It should come up with the Field tab, just below the middle you'll see 3 radio buttons which are the control type.
