Convert PDF to XDP


Level 3

Can anyone tell me the best possible way to convert PDF files to XDP? I have 500 PDF forms that needs to be converted to XDP. Not sure if this really works out well but would like to give it a try otherwise we need to re-design the forms from scratch.

I am aware that there is a PDFUtility that I can use but does that requrie any specific module to be bought?

If your PDF documents are "XFA-based forms", you can convert them into XDP files using "PDF Utility" service.

Otherwise, you have no other choice other than creating new templates from scratch.

Hi Ajay,

How about opening the PDF in LiveCycle Designer and saving it as XDP? You can save the form as XDP. Not sure, whether it will have any impact at the running time. But you can give it a try.





yes you can open them in designer and select the "Interactive" option when importing it into designer



what is the use case for converting so many of these non xfa forms into xdp templates?

are these just data entry forms?
