I want to be able to import data from a MS Access data base into PDF files that I can send out each file to individuals for updates and confirmation of accuracy of data.  I export the data from MS Access into a XLM file. I then open a PDF with fields named the same as the fields exported into XLM.  I then tell it to import data and point to the XLM file I exported.  Nothing happens help please.

In the future I recommend posting LiveCycle Designer ES questions to the LiveCycle Designer ES forum.

The problem may be the object type of the form fields (text fields versus numeric fields) and the characteristics of the data in the XML. If the form fields are text fields, I would expect the data to bind and display successfully. If the form fields are numeric fields, the data may bind successfully but the display and edit patterns associated with the fields may prevent the data from displaying successfully.
