Hi icabin!

I realize this is an old thread but I was hoping there might still be help here.

I clicked on the link you provided and it's not what the link says it'll be, it's a blank website per se.

I see now that it's the same as your user name so I'm guessing it's your site. Have you by chance created a new site with the information?

Thank you so much!

Diane

As long as the "additional static code" is assigned to a field(for ex: textfield rawvalue) before calling export, it will get exported to the xml. If this is not the case may be need more details on what you are trying to do.

Converting a PDF file to XML means the text from the PDF will be extracted. If you want to transport or store the text from a document without the formatting, then you should export to XML.

Instructions

    1. Click “Save” to save a copy of your PDF file as an HTML formatted document.
    2. Double-click on your PDF document to open it in Adobe Reader 9.
    3. Click “File.” Click “Save a Copy” from within the Adobe Reader 9 file menu.
    4. Select “HTML” from the drop down menu on screen within Adobe Reader 9.

My question is can we able to get some additional static code in exported xml file using any script?

"Export data" is an 'Extended' feature, It wont be existed in Reader Functionality. To get the feature in Adobe reader the form should be "Reader Extended". with "ReaderExtensions" module check the property of "Import and export form data" option, then only form can get this feature. Acrobat has some of the "Extended" features in-built.Without using Acrobat or applying "ReaderExtensions", may not get this feature.

Please check this thread for email option for export data: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3766346#3766346 .
