Import form data
As an alternate to filling in a PDF form manually, you can import file data from a text (TXT), Extensible Markup
Language (XML), Acrobat Form Data Format (FDF), XML Data Package File (XDP), FormFlow99 Data File (XFD),
or Acrobat XFDF (XFDF) file into a PDF form. Some file formats are available only if you import the data into
particular PDF forms, such as a PDF form created in LiveCycle Designer.
If you import data from a text file, each row in a text file must be tab-delimited to create columns, as in a table.
When a row of data is imported, each cell becomes the value of the form field that corresponds to the column name.
1 Open the PDF form.
2 Choose Forms > Manage Form Data > Import Data.
3 Choose the form data type from the Files Of Type menu, select a file, and click Select.
If you import form data from a form that doesn’t match the form you’re importing into, only the form fields that
match are updated, and those that don’t match are ignored. Existing text in text form fields is replaced if you import data
to those fields.
