Importing data from Excel to generate "filled" PDF form that was created in Designer

Hi there
I have a form that was created in Designer.  The data that  I need to import is all in a Excel spreadsheet with the same fields as the form.
Is it possible to import all the data so that it generates a printed PDF with the data on each line of excel?
For example:
If my excel file shows:
First Name      Last Name     Phone Number        UserID
John               Doe               416-777-9970           johndoe997
Mike               Rogers           905-887-3398          mikerogers997
In this example I would like to generate a PDF form for John and for Mike, each with their details filled out on the form based on the data in the excel sheet
Thanks in advance!

  • I have a acrobat reader, can I import text delimited data format to a PDF Form so that it can auto fill into forms that was created? If not, what about FDF and XML data

    I have a acrobat reader, can I import text delimited data format to a PDF Form so that it can auto fill into forms that was created? If not, what about FDF and XML data

    Yes, you can do all of that via Tools - Forms - More Form Options - Import Data, if you have Acrobat.
    If you only have the free Reader then you can still do it, but it requires a script.

  • Why can't i see the information entered into a PDF form that was created?

    I have created a fillable form and when the individuals complete the form and send it back, it shows blank until you click in each box, but you can't print it off with all of their information as it doesn't show on the print?  Did i do something wrong when i created it?

    This is typically an issue when a person uses a non-Acrobat product (Preview on the Mac or NitroPDF on Windows, for instance) to fill out the PDF form.
    Somewhere at the beginning of your form, let the users know they must use Adobe's free Reader or one of their commercial products: Acrobat Standard (for education) or Acrobat Pro to complete the form. That, or just convert it to a web form, with instructions for them to print each page as they move along.
    There could be a different reason, but this is the most common.
    I hope that helps,

  • Import data from excel file

    Is anybody can help how to import data from excel file to the form created with designer 7.0. Originally there is a script inside the form to populate drop down list and depending from data selected in the ID number drop down list, there will be filled out the description and the prices text fields. But now I have to modify this form with data from excel file, which has more than 30000 lines and put all this data to script is too much.
    So, can somebody know how can I after filling the ID number field , populate the description and price text fields with data from excel file corresponding to this ID number ?
    This form is used in Adobe reader.
    Any comments are welcome.

    That's what i said in my prev. Post to clear cache... :)
    disable your cache from nqsconfig.ini
    In cache section of NQSConfig file,
    you find
    ENABLE     =     YES;
    set to NO
    if you are using data ware house as the source for OBIEE,
    you know that when ETL is done, so just create iBot to purge cache automatically at that particular intervals,
    So that report runs freshly at that time
    And what happened to your View Selector question?

  • How to import data from excel or csv files to Oracle table

    hello everybody,
    I am new here and new in Oracle. I would like to know the steps how to import data from excel or csv files to Oracle table.
    Let say I already have table inside the Oracle. Then my user give me the sets of data inside the Excel Worksheet.
    So, how can I import the excel data into Oracle table.
    Thank you in advance.

    Even easier. Download JDeveloper 11G from this site.
    Set up the database connection, right click on the table, select Import->Excel and specify your file to load it. On the import pop-up, you must view and update each tab indicating Columns, Data Types, and DML.
    Columns -- move the selected columns that you want to load to the box on the right
    Data Types -- select column name from second column to which the data for each column of the import file should load
    DML -- click this tab to generate the INSERT SQL
    Once done click 'Insert'

    Here are the basic steps needed to read data from excel spreadsheet using the Java Excel API(jExcel API).
    jExcel API can read a spreadsheet from a file stored on the local file system or from some input stream, ideally the following should be the steps while reading:
    Create a workbook from a file on the local file system, as illustrated in the following code fragment:
              import java.util.Date;
              import jxl.*;
             Workbook workbook = Workbook.getWorkbook(new File("test.xls"));
    On getting access to the worksheet, once can use the following code piece to access  individual sheets. These are zero indexed - the first sheet being 0, the  second sheet being 1, and so on. (You can also use the API to retrieve a sheet by name).
              Sheet sheet = workbook.getSheet(0);
    After getting the sheet, you can retrieve the cell's contents as a string by using the convenience method getContents(). In the example code below, A1 is a text cell, B2 is numerical value and C2 is a date. The contents of these cells may be accessed as follows
    Cell a1 = sheet.getCell(0,0);
    Cell b2 = sheet.getCell(1,1);
    Cell c2 = sheet.getCell(2,1);
    String a1 = a1.getContents();
    String b2 = b2.getContents();
    String c2 = c2.getContents();
    // perform operations on strings
    However in case we need to access the cell's contents as the exact data type ie. as a numerical value or as a date, then the retrieved Cell must be cast to the correct type and the appropriate methods called. The code piece given below illustrates how JExcelApi may be used to retrieve a genuine java double and java.util.Date object from an Excel spreadsheet. For completeness the label is also cast to it's correct type. The code snippet also illustrates how to verify that cell is of the expected type - this can be useful when performing validations on the spreadsheet for presence of correct datatypes in the spreadsheet.
      String a1 = null;
      Double b2 = 0;
      Date c2 = null;
                        Cell a1 = sheet.getCell(0,0);
                        Cell b2 = sheet.getCell(1,1);
                        Cell c2 = sheet.getCell(2,1);
                        if (a1.getType() == CellType.LABEL)
                           LabelCell lc = (LabelCell) a1;
                           stringa1 = lc.getString();
                         if (b2.getType() == CellType.NUMBER)
                           NumberCell nc = (NumberCell) b2;
                           numberb2 = nc.getValue();
                          if (c2.getType() == CellType.DATE)
                            DateCell dc = (DateCell) c2;
                            datec2 = dc.getDate();
                           // operate on dates and doubles
    It is recommended to, use the close()  method (as in the code piece below)   when you are done with processing all the cells.This frees up any allocated memory used when reading spreadsheets and is particularly important when reading large spreadsheets.              
              // Finished - close the workbook and free up memory
    The API class files are availble in the 'jxl.jar', which is available for download.

  • Error while importing data from excel to forms

    I am working on Oracle forms 10g, and I'm supposed to import data from excel sheet to forms.
    While the user enters the data,sometimes after entering a particular word he/she hits the alt+enter button.
    As a result the data appears in two lines in a single row
    So,when I try to import the data it's not importing the data in a right manner.
    S0,I want to replace this linefeed and carry with five spaces.
    Eg:The user instead of entering Geekpedia enters Geek
    in the excel sheet.
    Now when I import this in the forms I want it to be imported as Geek Pedia.(5 spaces between Geek and pedia).

    Maybe you can consider save excel as .csv files and then you can load them as flatfiles to external table in OWB.

     Is there a way to import data from excel  - so if a column is hyperlink - the whole data will move to the list (text + link of the hyperlink column)?
    keren tsur

    According to your description, you want to export excel which contains a hyperlink column to SharePoint list.
    Refer to the following steps:
    Open the Excel, insert/create the table. 
    Now click on any cell of table and go to the ‘Design Tools’.
    Click on the Export and then ‘Export table to SharePoint List’.
    You will see a popup where you need to provide the URL of SharePoint site, list name and description.
    Then click on next, On the next screen you will see columns with data types which are going to create in SharePoint list.
    Now click finish and wait until the operation gets finished. You will see that list gets created in SharePoint site with the records.

  • Import data from excel explanation

    Running SAP B1 2007 A PL49.
    In the import data from excel functionality, using items.  There are 2 checkboxes that appear:
    update existing records
    update accounts in existing items
    can anyone explain what each checkbox means?

    hi Rich,
    Update Existing Records
    The system overwrites the data in the corresponding fields of the existing master records.
    The numbers of the master records for business partners or items cannot be overwritten.
    The type of a business partner cannot be changed once business transactions have been entered for that partner.
    Update Accts in Existing Items
    When importing item data, you can also update the information for the expense and revenue accounts.

  • Import data from excel

    Hi, I am using Jdeveloper 11g and I want to import data from excel in my table through the jsf page and commit it to database. How can I implement it. Its urgent please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Unless you are importing Excel data to save a dying patient in the operating theatre, it's not, by definition, urgent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (and I must be right, because I used 22 exclamation points, where you only used 21).
    Have you looked at ADF Desktop Integration to see if that would work for you? If not, you could:
    1). Use an af:inputFile to upload the Excel file
    2). Using something like Apache POI to read the file
    3). Create rows, set the attributes, insert them, and commit them (if you're using ADF BC, you'd use a View Object to do this)

    Thanks in advance for any answer,

    You can check a working example package [1] (use your Adobe ID to log in)

  • Giving dynamic sheet name while importing data from Excel in OPENROWSET query

    I want to import data from Excel to table in SQL server. Sheets in Excel file can have any name. I want to get data from first sheet of the excel file. 
    CREATE PROC CopyExcelDataToTempTable
    @ExcelPath VARCHAR(1000)
    EXEC sp_configure 'show advanced options', 1;
    EXEC sp_configure 'ad hoc distributed queries', 1;

    FROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0',
    SELECT CONCAT('Excel 12.0 Xml;HDR=YES;Database=', @ExcelPath),
    'SELECT * FROM [Sheet1$]');
    Currently I am giving Sheet1 as static name in Select statement. But my sheet name is not fixed. I want to create a dynamic query. If getting Sheet name is not possible then can we put sheet with its index in Select query? There is no front end. Whatever I
    want to do is in SQL server 2012. Is there any solution for this problem?

    Hi Ajinkya,
    To get the sheet names from an excel, you can use the Stored Procedure
    SP_TABLES_EX. See the below code.
    EXEC sp_addlinkedserver 'ExcelSource', '',
    'Excel 8.0'
    EXEC sp_addlinkedsrvlogin 'ExcelSource', 'false'
    EXECUTE SP_TABLES_EX 'ExcelSource'
    the names in the worksheet.xls and execute result are like below.
    Table name
    Regarding your description, you need the first sheet of your excel. As the result shows, the sheet names are sorted, so there’s no guarantee to get the first one. The SP can work as a workaround when there’s only one sheet in your excel or the required sheet’s
    name is customized to be sorted at the top first.
    If you have any question, feel free to let me know.
    Best regards,
    Eric Zhang

    4 your 2nd issue: you can easily use Excel.Application COM-object. In C# exporting from Excel can be:

  • Importing data from excel  ... when clicking finish button nothing happens

    Version 3.1/32bit version ... I am trying to import data from excel but when i clicki finish button nothing happens. any idea. this used to work fine on the older version?

    Generally speaking, the data import from an xls or xlsx format Excel file works. You need to provide more information about your environment and the Excel file itself -- size, data types of the columns, number of worksheets, etc.
    I recommend running sqldeveloper.exe (not sqldeveloperW.exe) from a command line window. Repeat your import test and see if any stack trace appears in the console. For example, trying to open a 0 byte xls file results in a stack trace like this:
