it depends on what it is that you want to do. The document as a pdf cannot be put into a variable. The doc object (coming from the Acro JS) can be assigned to a XFA Javascripting variable like that:

var myDoc = event.target;

Then you can use properties and functions (not all may work). E.g. myDoc.importDataObject("xx"); to get an attachment in the PDF...
