livecycle es2, workbench 9.0
I'm new to workbench and have a problem extracting data from a pdf form submitted to a short lived process.
I have set up the following very simple process :
default startpoint > ProcessForm > exportData > set value > set value > Write Document
The intention is to update the document and write it to disk. So far, each step works except for the 'export data' where I cannot get the pdf to extract to xml.
The Input to the 'export data' step is a variable (myDoc), Data Type: Document, created from the incoming PDF form.
If I write out myDoc it is an exact copy of the incoming document, so I guess the start and finish steps of of the process are OK.
The incoming (PDF) form I was given had no data schema, but I thought I could access the form data by exporting to an xml variable....
Service : FormDataIntegration / exportData
input (PDF Document) variable : myDoc
output(Data extracted) variable : myXMLData
Then in the next step (set value) access the xml element I am after ..
Location: /process_data/@groupId Expression: /process_data/myXMLData/xdp/datasets/data/form1/mainPage/groupId
This is did not work, so I got the incoming form, exported the form data to an xml file, and created a schema using Stylus Studio. I then imported that into the myXMLdata definition. ( BTW - Do I need to specify the root node after importing it ? )
Still not working !
Extra info : The XML view of my incoming form shows I have a minimal dataset definition- is this OK ??
The schema created by stylus studio has none of the xfdf, xfa settings I have seen on other schemas - is this OK ?
Any help to get this fixed greatly appreciated
Could you please post the PDF and the XML extract from the Extract Data step? I ran into an issue like this earlier today. Just making sure it isn't the same issue. And if it is, I may be able to help you!
hey thanks for the offer, but I am now sorted after I found a simple working example on line.
This is a similar process to the one I am working on, and is clearly described and easy to follow...
girish bedekar - I thank you !
