use of oledb database connection in input form of process

I've created dynamic pdf form with data connection to mssql database and with script that automatically adds rows to table and fills fields.

When I try to open this form as input form for my process in workspace it generates an error: Unable to create SOM expression. That means that sql database connection works not properly.

How can I fix this? Is it possible to use data connection to oledb database in the input form?

Have you gotten an answer on this? I just got the same error today and do not know what it is.


Hi, John.

Unfortunately I haven't found solution for this occurrence. But I suppose using explicit connection to database isn't the best decision for business processes. Therefore it was replaced in our case with some kind of process utilizing adobe jdbc service.

Regards, Irina.

I have a form that includes db connection (OLDB ->Access). But in

workspace I have an error while initiating it. The error is an Adobe Acrobat message;

"Unable to create SOM expression $record.tablename.fieldname"

I am using Acrobat 9 pro ext. and when I use reader then there is no problem.

I removed enhanced security settings in preferences of Acrobat. What else i can do? Any suggestions?

Thank in advance..
