New User-Data Import needed into simple form- Where do I start?


Former Community Member
In short : Form has been created and works well. Need to automate it a bit to ease work flow. I need my user to be able to select a Vendor ID at the top of the form, then have it auto fill the firm name, address, etc. This info will be contained in a spread sheet in the same directory (if Excel is an option) Would rather not use Access because not everyone has it.

Trouble Is, I know it SHOULD work, but am new to the program and am unsure HOW to make it work. If pointed in the right direction, I can usually figure it out.

Thanks in Advance for helping

Hello Sandy,

You create a XML data file, then import it after open form in Acrobat (not Reader).

It is better to add these data to form when create form in Designer, so users can user Reader to fill it.

The easy way to create XML data file is using Designer Generate Preview Data in Form Prosperities dialog -> Preview tab.
