Any XDC file experts here?

I need to know the syntax to include in the XDC files to make input and output tray selections. I've searched for nearly two days now without much luck.

thanx

Mark

    Mark,

    Well I am no expert but I tried to search about this on Adobe website and found that that XDC Editor is available in LiveCycle Designer 8.2. You can check more information [here|http://livedocs.adobe.com/livecycle/8.2/wb_help/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm?context=Workbench_ES⊤ic=000652] but this version of ALD is yet not supported by SAP 😔

    Hi Mark

    Am not an XDC expert either, but have a look at SAP Note 766410.

    There you find a reference to [https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/adobe], then drill down to -> Installation & Configuration -> SAP Interactive Forms - Configuration Guides -> Customizing Printing Workflows

    Inside you see definitions for printer trays and stuff like that.

    Hope that help

    Daniel

    My main problem was my backend system is 6.40 and not 7.0 SP13 which is required for tray selections. Thanks to everyone who answered.

    I really need a workaround to the input tray selection. Since there isn't a built in way in NW2004 to allow for coding this, I've tried to get the printer to choose the correct tray via paper types.

    I can set one tray to A4 paper and then set the form to A4 paper type and it will pull from that tray. The problem, of course, is that I'm not using A4 paper but Letter. On some printers it works ok but on the one I NEED it to work on it's cut off.

    Can anyone suggest a workaround similar to assigning a paper type to a tray on the printer? I'm even open to more crazy ideas. Believe me I've tried all kinds of things.

    thanx

    Thanks guys. I was able to get the XDC editor but it didn't matter due to the version of my backend system - No paper tray selection via XDC.

    I was able to use my original thought of setting one of the paper trays in the printer to "think" that it has A4 paper. I then used the XDC file to shift the print to line up. It's only a workaround until we're on a supported version.

    thanx
