adobe form not saving data.

hi Experts,

I am facing strange problems with Adobe forms.

I am working on both Offline and online adobe forms.

adobe form which i make does not allow to save data.

I am using the Adobe liveCycle designer 7.1.

The Adobe reader version is 7.08

and service pack is SPS 11.

I have used both the tutorials for offline and online adobe forms.

Online Problem :-

The project for online works fine and it also allows to save data(when i save the form on my PC).

But when i create a new form on my machine it does not allow to save data.

Really confuse what the problem is.

I have also tried this.

Copeid the XDP file from the Online tutorial project into my project

if i use this work around the the problem is resolved. But i am no able to understand why the XDP CREATED on my machine does not work.

Offline problem:-

In this case i am not able to save data in the form at all.

As the PDF created itself not allow to save data.

Please help.

Points would be awarded to helpful answers.

    Hi Satya & sanjyoti,

    I am facing a pecular problem in using Adobe forms.

    I am able to pass data from webdynpo application, to the Interactive form(using mappings, as mentioned by satya).

    But for the same form & WD application, i am not able to pass data from the Interactive Form, back to the WD application.

    My scenario is like this:

    I need to show a form, with some prefilled data, such as date, userID, etc. I populate the node in my WD application, & then call the form.

    The form displays the above prefilled data. Now the user has to fill the remaining fields & click on submit(Submit-to-sap button). The onsubmit property of the Interactive form is mapped to a onaction event, where WD tries to read the data entered by the user.

    The problem is that on clicking of the submit button in the form, the event is not getting called.

    If i use a button in the WD view itself, then the action gets called, but there is no data. In short, the data is NOT getting passed from Interactive form to WD application.

    Can you please help me out with this?

    • Hi,

      The problem was the XACF version installed on my pc. I upgraded it to the latest version, & the problem is resolved, partly.

      But now the problem is reversed.

      Now on clicking of the button, i can pass value from InteractiveForm, to the WD application.

      But now i am not able to pass value from WD application, to the Interactive form.

      My scenario is as follows:

      There is one view. It has one container & interactive form.

      The container contains input fields. Both, the input fields & the InteractiveForm, are mapped to the same context node.

      There is one button in the container, & another in the Interactiveform.

      After updating the XACF version, the porblem i am now facing, is that:

      The context node contains only those values, as are present in the form. If i update the values in the WD input fields & click the button, the values get changed to the values present in the InteractiveForm!!!!

      The values changs are possible only if i change the values in the Form itself.
