I am using LiveCycle ES 8.2/ I have created a form with text fields that I want to be filed from data in a Microsoft Access query. I have created the form with the name of each field corresponding to the name of the appropriate data field in the query. When I tried to fill from Adobe by pointing to the xml file I am taken back to my form and absolutely NOTHING happens. wizard is demanding an xml file, so in Access I created an XML file from the query. Then in adobe again, in my form, I select the xml file and walla – NOTHING.

There are also a lot of threads in the forums here about xfa forms and access databases:
