Submitted Form Help Needed

Hi there,
I have created a form in Adobe LiveCycle Designer 7.0 so that clients can fill in their answers and send back. I included the Submit button, however when I did a trial run with the form, it returned in .xml format which wont open in Internet Explorer. Can anyone guide me on how I can have the submitted forms returned in PDF form or if I need to do something with Internet Explorer to be able to access the .xml docs?
Thank you!
Amy

If you want to use the .xml file, open the original pdf and import the file in to it then save under another name.
You CAN enable the file so that people using Reader can fill it out, save it then email the entire form back to you but there are limts to it's use. You can either send the form to 500 people and collect an unlimited amount of responses or you can send it to an unlimited amount of people and collect 500 responses. Anything over that amount will be in violation of your license.
To enable the file in Acrobat, you would find the option under Advanced>Enable usage rights in Adobe Reader (at least that's the verbiage in Acrobat 8 Pro). I'm not sure exactly where that option is in LiveCycle Designer but it's probably similar.

  • Product Specific Form - Help Needed

    I have a client who will be selling firearms and ammunition on a hunting site, along with other hunting products.
    I need to have a form specific for firearms and ammunition products that will be required to be filled out before that product firearm and or ammunition can be added to the cart. The laws in Canada are very strict about purchases of such product on the internet.
    How do I do this or is it even possible to have a form specific to these products pop up when add to cart is clicked?
    Thanks in advance

    Hello river east,
    I'm just spitballing here, but here is one option for this to work.
    Basically you would create a secure zone and if the user isn't signed in they wouldn't see the Add to Cart button.
    The js would look like this - http://jsfiddle.net/chaddidthis/uDmXj/1/
    As a part of signing up for the secure zone they have to accept the gun and ammo purchasing terms. You could have the link to the form on the large product page, sends them to either log in or sign up via the form they need to fill out. After then fill out the form they are sent back a page sending them back into the large product view they were on, and since they are signed in now the product will be able to add to cart.
    Maybe this will spark others to add on to this, but that is pretty much the only way I could think to accomplish the desired results.
    Hope it helps,

  • Basic form help needed

    I am new to Dreamweaver 8 (but have worked with simple html a
    quite a bit) and am working on building a, hopefully, simple
    prototype for a project. What I need to do is collect user-entered
    text and user-selected dropdown box data on one page and send it to
    another for presentation there. After looking at the Help screens,
    I looked at using Session variables and it seems that is the best
    way to pass the data. Where I am stuck is in the (from Help
    Contents) Making Pages Dynamic - Creating Forms - Creating HTML
    forms help. They first say to, in step 2, Select Insert > Form
    (which doesn't do anything - you have to click another option,
    which I figured meant Form again). Then, in step 3, they say to
    "Specify the page or script that will process the form data." by
    selecting the file in the Action box in Properties. I don't have a
    file to "process the form data" and don't really know what they are
    talking about. Help!
    I originally (before I reverted to using Help) set it up with
    Insert->Form->Text Field text entry boxes, figuring this was
    a Form field that could be captured and passed on. Right? Wrong? I
    guess I thought the method would be to define a variable name
    associated with a text input field in one page, then pass it with
    the value to the next page. That is pretty much what it seems
    Session variables do (?), which I discovered when I started looking
    at Help.
    So, was I on the right track for a simple implementation and
    missed the way to capture and transmit the data, or do I need to
    use the Forms->Forms option? If the former, how do I define the
    variable names? If the later...well, I am real confused then. :-)
    Thanks for your help.
    (btw, we do have training material coming - went with
    Dreamweaver for Dummies, Peachpit Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 Hands-On
    Training "dead tree media" and TechRepublic Fast Track Dreamweaver
    8 CBT. Any opinions on those?)

    Session variables as the name suggests are created when a
    user starts a session and last till the session is open. You form
    doesn't really need session variables unless you are carrying form
    data from one page to another and need to keep it associated with
    that specific user such as in shopping cart applications.
    I have never used the dreamweaver insert form, so can't help
    you there. why not code the form yourself, especially since you
    have been using html

  • Forms help needed

    I have several forms on my website and I need each to send
    the form to two email address, and also send back an auto response
    when email is sent out. Also after submit button it says your
    request has been submitted and then after about 8 seconds it takes
    them back to the home page.
    How do I do this? I have the forms done but need help with
    the rest above (two emails,auto respond,ect.)
    Thanks

    There are only two ways to process form data -
    1. Use mailto:[email protected] as the action of the form
    2. Use a server-side scripting method to a) harvest the
    form's data, b)
    process it in some manner, e.g., enter it into a database, c)
    formulate and
    send an email to one or more email recipients, and d)
    redirect the visitor
    to some ending page
    Method 1 is quite simple, and is also the least reliable. It
    depends both
    on your visitor having an email client already installed on
    their computer -
    this eliminates public computers, or home users without email
    clients
    installed (more and more it seems) - and on the installed
    email client
    responding to
    the mailto call. It is not possible to use this method *and*
    send the
    visitor to a
    thank you page as well.
    Method 2a is the preferred method, since it eliminates the
    problems of
    method
    1, but it means that you have to grapple with
    server-scripting somehow (ASP,
    CF, PHP, perl, etc.).
    Method 2b would be to use some third-party form processing,
    like
    http://www.bebosoft.com/products/formstogo/.
    You would have to decide which of these methods is best for
    your needs,
    but if it's Method 2a, then start by asking your host what
    they provide for
    form
    processing. If it's 2b, then read their FAQ/instructions
    carefully.

  • Forgotten email submitted form help

    I have a forgotten email form... when you type your email, it
    goes to another php page that will query the db for that email and
    send your forgotten email to that email address.
    It may not be the best way, but I am learning and so far so
    good.
    However, what can I do based on my code below if that email
    address is *not* in the database? Obviously it wont send an email,
    but how can I incorporate that into my code below?
    Also: I guess I should have a line on the second form read:
    "Sorry no email found". But, how can I delegate where it displays
    on the screen? Just general help here please, as I am learning a
    lot so far! Thanks.
    $email=$_POST['email'];
    mysql_select_db($database_connectDB, $connectDB);
    $query_Recordset1 = "SELECT `password` FROM `members` WHERE
    `email` = '$email' LIMIT 0 , 30";
    $Recordset1 = mysql_query($query_Recordset1, $connectDB) or
    die(mysql_error());
    $row_Recordset1 = mysql_fetch_assoc($Recordset1);
    $totalRows_Recordset1 = mysql_num_rows($Recordset1);
    $your_password = $row_Recordset1['password']
    ?>
    <?php
    // send e-mail to ...
    $to=$email;
    // Your subject
    $subject="Forgotten Password!";
    // From
    $header="from: My Web Site";
    // Your message
    $messages= "Your password for login to our website has

    $messages.="Your password is $your_password \r\n";

    There are a couple of different ways to handle something like
    this. You
    can have the form submit back to the same page that displays
    the form. The
    logic would be something like:
    if($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD']=='POST){
    // code here to look up the e-mail address and, if found send
    the e-mail
    // and either display a success message or a sorry not found
    message
    }else{
    // put the form here
    The second approach would be to build a second page that the
    form submits
    to. In that page, you would only need the code to look up the
    e-mail and,
    if found, send the message and display a success message. If
    it's not
    found, display the sorry message. It would be a complete
    page, styled as
    you want it. Just put the PHP where you want the success/fail
    message to
    display.

  • Urgent Form Help Needed

    I am trying to fill out a pdf form created by the Government of Canada and when I enter text in to the one of the text fields it does not keep the text there the text field merges with the box above.  The form is available here: http://www.international.gc.ca/development-developpement/assets/pdfs/partners-partenaires/ calls-appels/iyip-psij-form-2014-eng.pdf . The fields I am having the problem with is 1.1 Internship Details which when I put in the answer (1200 words) it half merges with the text box above 1.0 Rationale for Initiative.
    I have downloaded a number of versions of the file (on a number of pcs) and they all have the same problem. There are problems downloading the form in Chrome and some of the other web browsers but the newest version of IE works.  I need to know if I am doing something wrong or if there is a problem with the form itself. I'm using Adobe Reader XI to fill the form and it was created using LiveCycle Forms 9.0. The creator of the form is highly unlikely to offer any assistance unless I can prove the problem is on their end. This is an RFP due tomorrow and my job kinda depends on it. HELP!

    Hi Erin,
    I've downloaded the form and tried to fill it in myself. I'm able to paste in 700 words (just under 4000 characters) without issue, but anything above that produces the error that you describe. So, it seems to me that the form designer may have imposed a limit on how many characters can be entered into that form field.
    I hope that helps....
    Best,
    Sara

  • UCM Web Form, help needed

    Hi,
    I just have started working on Oracle UCM. I am majorly stuck with web form (HCSF).
    Below is the form code,
    <form name="CommentsPageForm" method="POST" action="<!--$HttpCgiPath-->">
              <input type=hidden name="IdcService" value="SUBMIT_HTML_FORM">

    If I keep the dID input field then it throws an error message like following

    If I remove the dID input field then it throws an error message like following
    Unable to execute service (null) and function computeDocID.
    (System Error: Either dID must be specified or RevisionSelectionMethod must not force the choice of a dID.)
    I have tried to remove and add other input fields but nothing has worked.
    Please help me out with this. Please point out where I made the mistake. I copied

    hi All,
    I'm facing the same issue, I have a soap request which will update the metadata field on the service call.
    The request url is coded as
    var requestUrl = httpCgiPath + "?IdcService=UPDATE_DOCINFO" + "&dID=" + datafileID +"&dDocName=" + datafileDocName + "&xComments=" + inputComments.value + "&dDocTitle=" + inputTitle.value + &idcToken=#active.IdcToken" + "&IsSoap=1";
    When I fetch the dynamic url and tried in browser then I get following error:
    Content Server Request Failed
    Unable to update the field. The authorization token is invalid. It has either expired or is not appropriate for the current request.
    You may need to reload an earlier page in order to proceed.
    See I have added idcToken as you guys suggested still token issue :(
    Any pointer for this issue will be helpful.

  • Checkbox in tabular form - help needed

    I'm trying to build a tabular form, with a checkbox for a field that can have value 'Y' or 'N'. Adding the checkbox is no problem, with the htmldb_item.checkbox API.
    However, processing it is.
    On this forum I found a way to process the checkboxes, by looping through all the records (with the help of htmldb_item.hidden in which the id is stored) and reading the value from the checkboxes and updating the column if the checkbox is checked. (see Re: Report with updateable checkbox)
    however, as soon as I add a htmldb_item.hidden item, I receive the following error when I submit the tabular form to the Multi Row Update process:
    "Error in mru internal routine: ORA-20001: Error in MRU: row= 1, ORA-20001: ORA-20001: Current version of data in database has changed since user initiated update process. "
    My query:
    Select id
    ,htmldb_item.hidden(1,id)
    ,htmldb_item.checkbox(2,id, decode(field, 'Y', 'CHECKED', NULL))
    from table
    What am I doing wrong?
    is there a better way to process a tabular form with checkboxes?
    Or should I process all the rows manually by updating every record even if it hasn't changed (with a loop through all the records)?

    Hello Everybody
    Here is my requirement.
    I am creating a XML form that will be set up with a approval workflow. My form has a combo box with several entries and whenever the user selects something from this box the approver should be changed accordingly.
    One more requirement is I should show this approver in the form.
    Can somebody please help me. I have seen the propeties in the XML form but not getting any clue on how to use them.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Renuka,
    In KM you can use layout set in order define something such as: command groups by files, folders and links. Also you can define your layout controller, which columms you want to display, number of rows so on. Please, read about layout set, collection renderer and resource renderer.
    After, you can assign this layout to your folder or iview.
    Therefore when you open your form from this iview, you can use botton defined in this layout.
    As you can see by default there are two layout defined for news:
    NewsBrowser
    NewsExplorer
    Try to analyze it.

  • Form Help Needed.

    Hi, I'm struggling to get the form to to go to a new frame once the form button has been submitted.
    Live example (The form shows at the end):
    http://www.pow-new-media.com/pay_per_click.php
    Using ActionScript 2.0
    The submit button is at this following path:
    Scene -> txt8 (MC) -> t8.1 (MC)
    The button has the following code on:
    Code:
    on (release) {     
    share_form.loadVariables("pay_per_click.php", "POST");
    The onClipEvent(data) is held on the movieClip txt8, as this is the clip that holds the all the form components.
    Code:
    onClipEvent(data){
         _root.nextFrame();
    The next from frame that i'm asking it to go to, is directly after the txt8 MovieClip. Both the the txt8 MovieClip and NextFrame have stop(); code on them. 
    The form submits all the info into the database, I just can't get it to load the next frame to say thank you. 
    Anyhelp would be great. 
    Thanks

    You should put a trace in the onClipEvent(data) function to see if it ever executes.  I am not too familiar with loadVAriables, but the data event is supposed to involve the receipt of data, so it is possible you are not capturing that event, assuming some data event is being generated from the posting of the form data.
