Hi All,

I am a new bie developing adobe forms. I am using Adobe Livecycle Designer 8 & has adobe reader 8.

I am trying to develop adobe forms with web service. The web service

WSDL location is :- http://www.webservicex.net/uklocation.asmx?wsdl

I have created a new dataconnection with the above URL, drag & drop fields & button onto the form & save the form.

when I open the PDF on my local machine, enter the post code and push button, nothing happens. no error/warning message.

I also downloaded a web service example PDF from http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/tips/index.html

This form also has button to execute a web service but again nothing happens?

Any clues why this is happening? I turned off my firewall thinking it might be blocking but no joy :-(

Please help!

Are you using Reader? If so the form must be Reader Extended to allow Reader to make a Web service call. Acrobat will allow it without Reader Extensions. I tried that wsdl in Acrobat and it worked fine.
