I created a form, I can fill it, submit it via my workspace, but once I go to review it (2nd step in my process, which is a simple transfer of the form information to another user), when I open the form it's empty, like when I open the form for the first time.
When I record the process, I can see that the data is received by the server and I see the data from my form. But, when I get to the 2nd step, my xdp is clear like a new file.
I don't see anything that could remove the data in my process. Could someone tell me if there's some place where that data could be erased?
P.S.: I'm using LiveCycle ES2.
1. I'm using the Reader
But isn't using the LiveCycle Workspace with the Reader suppose to work even if it's not reader enabled?
Livecycle Forms Designer is used to create a PDF. You use Acrobat and Reader to view and fill in the PDF. If you use Acrobat, the form data is saved when the form is re-opened. With Reader it is not, unless the form is Reader Enabled but there is an additional cost in doing that. So that is the reason your data is not being preserved when the form is reopened
I tought using the LiveCycle Workspace in LiveCycle ES2 was supposed to make the saving of forms possible whatever software you are using. Could someone confirm (or deny) that you need to reader enable the forms to save them via the LiveCycle Workspace?
Also, I can see the data being sent to the server when I hit complete the first time.
If you want to save loccally on your own computer then the form must be Reader Extended for that. Workspace
gives you the ability to save the form but you are submitting it (the data) to the server and it is being stored there. You do not need Reader Extensions for that. When you require the form again teh data and form are recombined and rendered in real time.
I assume you are using LC 8.2.1 .....on the user step in the Form Data Mappings
are you suing the same variable as input and output?
Are you using the same form throughout or changing it?
Well I am using LC 9.0.0 and I am using the same variable as input and output for my user step. The data gets to the user step, since I can put information comming from the form (via the xdp) in my "task instructions".
Here's the file. The xml file for the data is not the best, I'm trying to get lists whitout success, but it should at least get the first row of the dynamic table I have in the form.
Thanks for taking a look.
Just wanted to give you an update on this. I am able to reproduce the issue and have narrowed it down to a probklem with the form. If I create a new form from your schema then the data flows through just fine. I will continue to investigate and let you know when I find something.
I have been playing with the structure of the form....If I remove the Consultant Name from the table then it sets the data just fine. I do not know why this is an issue. If I save the data from the form then remerge it after it works fine.
You will have to open an incident with support if you want to take this further.
I have seen this issue if you are using the default renderer with an XDP. If you save your file as a PDF and stay with the default renderer, things should start working.
