With no files open in Acrobat, open the Tools Pane, Forms Panel, and click "More form options". From the dropdown choose "Manage form data" -> "Merge data files into spreadsheet". You can them pick a whole series of PDFs or FDFs containing filled form entries, and export them as a single XML or CSV file which will open in Excel.
Sorry! did not work. Got the exact same result as before, with the empty form opened. Just got the titles of
the files in the first column and nothing for the subsequent columns.
It only works if I convert each individual file into xml first, which is too much work because I have hundreds of these files.
This is a serious problem. The Merge datafiles to spreadsheet functionallity does not work in the same way as it did.
I have 300-odd forms from which I extract data, the largest of which has 955 fields. Acrobat X grenerates a csv with 350-odd fields, Acrobat 9 produces one with all 955 fields. Until this issue is resolved I will have to revert to Acrobat 9. This is a serious bug or loss of functionallity that needs to be addressed.
I cannot see how the Action Wizard could be used to batch the export of data to xml - a batch export would probably work as Acrobat X seems to treat xmls differently although I have not had to to fully investigate.
