My company and its customers use a form designed in LiveCycle to collect some XML data from suppliers that we can then organize and deal with. The problem is that many people involved in the data gathering get a considerable number of these forms at a time and need to extract the XML data. As it is, the only solution seems to be open each document in either Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat, export the XML data of the form, repeat this cycle.
The problem with this is that Reader and Acrobat are both slow to load and processing 50 documents can take quite some time. Furthermore, because it is a LiveCycle form, we cannot use Acrobat to merge them into an Excel sheet and process from there. We are quickly running thin on quick solutions for this problem.
Is there any thing within the Adobe products I have missed? Perhaps a third party solution is available? We have people who could personally write a solution if there is a development kit that would be able to address this problem and maintain the data in the XML Schema attached to the form. Ideas would be greatly appreciated.
