I am creating a form in Adobe Livecycle ES2 where my client would like to be able to import an amount of aggregate data before a form users fills out the form. They would like to ensure that this aggregate data is not overwritten should a user import an XML file with saved answers. Is this possible?

Is there a way to export only the data capture from the end user? Is there a script that imports certain fields or protects certain data from being over written?

The end users will be using Adobe Acrobat Reader, so the functionality is most important in this product.

Thanks!

Hi,

everything you want is possible under the right circumstances.

You can create own datasets other than the default "data", to store additional data in your form, that is not affected by an import.

You can at least export data portions with Reader using the submitForm() method.

You also can write a custom import function that allows you to import XML data with Acrobat and Reader.

Here's a sample: http://thelivecycle.blogspot.de/2014/07/import-xml-via-script-into-adobe-reader.html

All this solutions will be custom so I cannot post a more detailed sample yet.

Hope this helps.
