I have a dynamic fill-in PDF that I want to "pre-fill" internally in my company before sending out to users who will change any pre-filled fields necessary and answer questions we did not already answer.
I can't check now, so I am not sure. I suspect not, but...
I developed a scripted import XML solution that worked when the form was digitally signed. This certified the PDF and the scripted import worked.
May be worth checking out,
Interesting, Niall. Is that solution on your website for download or is it proprietary? I looked on the PDFscripting website, and they have developed a folder-level script that adds a new toolbar element in Acrobat that shows a combo box of options (clients, for example) that when the user selects the form pre-fills accordingly. So I know it's possible, and I'll see what I can put together.
I am afraid that solution was for a specific client and I can't share it. If I get a chance I will mock up an example, but this wont be for a while. From memory it was just a straight importData method. This would normally fail silently in a non-certified form, but when the form is digitally signed/certified, it works without a hitch.
