How to add fields to an existing XDP form


Level 2

This is my first time using LiveCycle. I have an existing XDP form to which I would like to add extra fields. In the screenshot below, I added the field on bottom right hand called Test Field. After creating this, I got a warning that the databinding value does not correspond to data connection. In the left pane window is what I believe the data connections are.


How can I edit the existing dataconnections so that I can can add a dataconnection for the testfield that I've created?

the symbol of you data connection indicates that a XML scheme (XSD) was used to define how the data is structured within the date connection.

If you have this XSD and know how to edit it, you can add new fields to it.

Otherwise it may be easier for you to remove the data connection and use the binding "use name" for the form fields.

As your form seems to be very simple this should not be a great task.
