    Trouble importing data

      I am experiencing some difficulties and was hoping someone can help me. I am using Adobe Acrobat Professional 8.0 & LifeCycleDesigner 8.0 and have created a form (originally imported .pdf and created form fields). I have successfully imported data from a .txt file which is tab delimited into the form, but am only able to select 1 row at a time. Ideally, I would like to import all rows of the .txt file creating multiple .pdf forms. For example the form may have:

      Row Name Address City State
      1 John Doe 123 Apple St. Portland OR
      2 Jane Doe 433 Orange St. Portland OR

      I want to end of with 2 copies of the same form (1 with information from row 1, and 1 with information from row 2)

      Just to clarify - I have created 2 different forms, on in Acrobat and one in LiveCycle and am experiencing the same problem with both applications.

          I am only experienced with the LiveCycle one so I can only speak to that.

          You cannot create multiple forms form the data file but you can have a single page per line. Also the only way I know of to do this is to turn the txt file into an XML file. Is there an option to generate that file as XML? If not you could write a data manipulation program to turn it into XML.
