Define form as PDF/A

Hi everyone
I use the LiveCycle Designer to design a from.
This form will be feeded with some data and freezed to a pdf file later.
Now my question: Is it possible to define the compatiblity or file type as "PDF/A" in the designer?
Our intention is to archive the PDF more than 10 years due to legal requirements
Thanks in advance
Best regards

There are some information how to setup a xfa form for pdf/a in the XFA spec 3.1 page 1389.
You may be possible to set up the output for pdf/a with xfa.config.present.pdf.pdfa....
But you will need LiveCycle Forms ES2 to use the properties (see page 1396).

  • Opening a Crystal Report in B1 8.8 in a User Defined Form representing UDO

    Hi Experts,
    Is it possible to open a Crystal Report from a User Defined Form representing my UDO?
    I had developed a 'Vendor Quotation' UDO and its  User Defined Form
    I wanted to show the report while clicking the Preview menu in SAP B1 8.8 toolbar.
    I have created the Crystal report and used the record selection as {@OVQT.DocEntry} = {DocKey@}
    Please help
    Also, is it possible to add Print layout and assign a default Print layout to this User Defined Form?
    Thanks in advance

    I also face the same problem. I make a master type using UDO. But i want to print it.
    In my opinion ( i haven't tried this way ). If we make a UDO ( master or document type ) , we will find the docentry and object field in our UDT. Both of these will connect between SAP form and Crystal report. In crystal report we select the tmsp_doclinetypelayout. It is a store procedure which will connect between SAP form and CR. Before that try to modify this SP by adding the udo object.
    Fyi, if i'm not mistake dockey is connected to docentry SAP form.

  • Is it possible to generate oracle forms in pdf format

    I have to generate a form in pdf format. Is it possible.
    If yes, how to achieve this.
    Thank you very much.

    One round about way to get a pdf screen shot is tick 'print to file' and use a printer which is set up with a postcript driver. This gives a postscript file which can be converted to pdf using 'ghostscript and gsview' (available free from gnu via various sites).

  • Problem opening Form based PDF via Safari browser with Adobe Reader 9.3 on MAC

    I'm mentioning below the problem that we are facing when we open a form based PDF created using a licensed version of Adobe Livecycle Designer ES (Version on a MAC machine through a Safari Browser.
    We tested this PDF form on a windows machine and the PDF opens in an IE browser via the latest Adobe reader 9.3 without any problem. I then received complaints by our clients that they were unable to open the same PDF on their Safari browser on a MAC machine, I tried to resolve the problem by downloading the latest version of Adobe Reader 9.3 for MAC but noticed that the Safari browser window would just keep refreshing the page without displaying the PDF at all. I then uninstalled the Adobe Reader 9.3 version and downloaded and installed an older version i.e., Abobe Reader 8.2 version for MAC and noticed that the PDF document successfully opened in the Safari browser. My question is why does a form based PDF work with an older version of Adobe Reader for MAC and not with the latest version? Our clients are not comfortable with the fact that we are refraining them from upgrading to the latest version of Adobe Reader for MAC and that they would have to downgrade their existing Adobe Reader 9.3 to a lower version Adobe Reader 8.2 in order for the PDF forms to work when it should be the other way around.
    Is there any fix or a patch that is currently being worked on that would resolve this issue in the latest Adobe Reader for MAC? If yes then when would it be ready? This issue is quite critical for our business and would appreciate it if this would be looked into with high priority.
    Thanks and Regards,
    Sheikh Huraiz Ahmed.

    That suggestion makes sense and likely works, but only if the user is on a machine that will allow them to use Reader. I'm sending this out to a lot of teachers, who are using machines either at school, or are school-issued machines, and they don't have the admin privileges to install software-- even Reader.
    so my problem is, if they are stuck on a machine without Reader, and without the possibility of having Reader... it's just not going to work because Preview can't handle these functions.
    And, since that is not an acceptable answer with what I'm trying to do... I will find another way to create/submit forms. I think there are some online possibilities I will have to make work.
    very, very disappointing and frustrating.

  • Why can I no longer fill in additional information on my adobe forms on pdf. At time this was an opposition. It will only allow me to type limited information?

    Acrobat Reader
    Why can I no longer fill in additional information on my adobe forms on pdf. At one time you could insert an icon that would allow you to type in additional information. It will only allow me to put in limited information?

    Not a lot of information. Can you post a link to a sample of the form so others can see the how the form does not work.

  • Send Adobe form as PDF via E-mail

    I am doing one interacive adobe form where i need to send that filled form in PDF format via email.
    I tried using below options but unfortunately its not working:
    1.I used "Email Submit Button" but its sending attachment as XML which I dont want.
    when reffred threads on this problem , they suggested to go to XML VIEW of this button and change SUBMIT FORMAT to "pdf" from "xml".... but in this case , that button is not working at all.
    2.I used below solution
    Use a regular form button:   Place a regular form button on your form .  Look on the Object Window for the button.  On the Field tag, towards the bottom will be a set of "Control Type" radio buttons.  Select the "submit" option.  There should now be a "submit" tab in the Object window.  Switch to the tab and on the "Submit As" pulldown select PDF.  But this is also not working.
    Your comments are helpful for me.

    Get your form data in XML format from Interface. There are some standard classes available to convert the XML to PDF and sending mail.

  • Problem in converting smart form into PDF

    HI Experts,
                      I am using a Function Module CONVERT_OTF for converting smart form into pdf file for send it to with attachment.
    But i got a error when i am using that FM.
    Runtime Errors         CONVT_NO_NUMBER
    unable to interpret *292 as a no.
    Is that because my file size too large about 13 pages of PDF?
    and when i run it for other smart forms which have 2 or 3 pages of PDF, its working perfectly.
    can anyone tell what is problem with that FM?

    I had the similar issue and after analysis I have that this is the issue by not passing the IMPORTING parameter of the Function Module "BIN_FILESIZE". Please try to pass some variable to this paramter and then this will be completely rectified.
    DATA ; v_filesize     TYPE i.
    *--Convert OTF data to PDF data
          format                = 'PDF'
          max_linewidth         = 132
          bin_filesize          = v_filesize
          otf                   = it_otfdata
          lines                 = it_pdfdata
          err_max_linewidth     = 1

          err_conv_not_possible = 3
          err_bad_otf           = 4
          OTHERS                = 5.
    Please verify whether this reolves the problem for you.
