    cfpdfform cannor read PDF

    fstocker1 Level 1

      Hi have a pdf with some formfields:

       

      http://www.direct-jobs.ch/abm.pdf

      (official form from swiss authorities)

       

      and i want to automatically fill it out with cfpdfform.

       

      However when I try to read it using

       

       <cfpdfform source="/tmp/abm.pdf" result="resultStruct" action="read"/><cfdump var="#resultStruct#">

       

      I get an CF-Error message

       

      Either datafile XML or data XML contained in the PDF document is invalid.

       

      however reading the form with acrobat reader works perfectly fine.

       

      Any ideas how I can get this to works?

       

      I suppose it has something to do with the version of acrobat the form was generated with, but thats just a guess.
