I am trying to create a dynamically populated drop-down field that would be populated with entries in an XML file (created from Access). I can get it to show the entries in preview mode, but not when viewed as a dynamic PDF file from Acrobat.
I have tried following the instructions on this help page:
Using LiveCycle Designer > Working with Data Sources > Connecting to a data source > To create a data connection to an XML schema and XML data file
I have tried binding the drop-down object to the schema and alternatively to the sample XML data file. I have also Data Default to the XML data file in the Form Properties menu.
As said earlier, it appears to work in preview mode only. When I then save the form using Acrobat 8 Dynamic XML Form (PDF) and open this file via Acrobat, the drop-down field shows blank. The data items that used to work in the preview mode are no longer there.
I can't seem to find any examples to learn from. I've looked at several books and they do not cover this topic.
Thank you for your help.
