    Soundex Feature

    2bgeek Level 1

      Hi,

       

      Just wanted to know if the Soundex feature is available in Designer. I have a form field which makes an LDAP call to an ADOBE Workflow and returns some names. Can the Soundex feature be implmeneted in this scenario in any way i.e. either in the form or the workflow?

       

      Regards,

      Nakul

            I think the Soundex feature is no more available. See the following note taken from Acrobat JavaScript Guide.

              Thanks for the indormation, Nith. Actually I already did go through this yesterday, but was still wondering if it can be incorporated in any way, because I dont understand the logic of reducing the available functionalities in higher versions. May be something similar is available and hence ADOBE discourages the use of this.
