Flatten PDF whit Assembler have NO form data ¿lose?

Dec 24, 2010 7:48 AM



I using LC ES 8.2.1, and have licence for Forms ES and ReaderExtensions ES Services.


I need flatten XFA based form generated with Adobe Designer, and saved as "Static PDF Form" (we no have Output Service).


1) Have Static PDF Form + XML data.

2) Forms ES: Load XML data on the form.

3) Assembler: Form with data (generated on 2 point) flatten using <NoXFA /> or <NoForms />



The problem is in the flatten PDF generated by Assembler have NO DATA, if the Assembler DDX happened to get <NoXFA /> or <NoForms />, the resulting PDF does NOT show the form data that had previously preloaded with Forms ES.

¿Why PDF LOSE data? ...have any way to flatten PDF with data (without using OUTPUT Service)????

    Not sure if this helps, but -  I remember something similar, but it involved dynamic PDF documents, and I seem to remember it was fixed with the service pack for ES (that would be the .1 of 8.2.1).


    The problem was that the data was added to the PDF, but it wasn't rendered into the "visual layer" until the document was opened.  This was because of the "render at client" option that is automatically on with dynamic PDFs.  When the NOXFA tag was run, the data was thrown away and therefore never made it to the rendered version.


    The solution was to make sure the template was static and the render at client option was off.


    If you look at the document after it comes from Forms, do you see the data?
