    PDF form fields not displaying data

      What I did:

      I created a PDF form and used the Extend Features in Adobe Reader. I sent the form to people to fill out and they have submitted the form back to me filled in.

       

       

      The issue:

      When I open the PDF form, the data in the fields doesn't display until I click the form field.

       

       

      My workaround:

      Using Adobe Acrobat, open the form. From the Forms menu, select Manage Form Data and then click Export Data. Save the file. Both the PDF and the FDF need to be in the same location (the FDF uses the PDF to display the data).

       

       

      Question:

      I would like to just open the PDF form and see the data in the fields. Is there something I can do to skip creating the FDF and be able to open the PDF to see the data?

       

       

      Thanks
