I have some questions concerning XML data imported into a PDF created using LiveCycle if anyone is able to answer them for me please.I have a 132Mb EXCEL file of data which when exported to an XML file via the XML data mapping facility is producing an XML file of 592Mb in size. When I try and import this XML file into the PDF using Acrobat it stops responding and eventually I receive an error message stating:The exception unknown software exception (0x40000015) occurred in the application at loc...

Is anyone able to tell me if there is a maximum size for XML files that you can import into a PDF document?? I need to know this as my client has a requirement for a very large data set within an interactive PDF generated using LiveCycle designer.

Thanks for the reply Kyle, however since the post I have now managed to work it out, for the benefit of others see an example below:var nodeitems = xfa.record.resolveNodes('datasourcename.Record[Criteria1=="Test" and Criteria2=="Test" and Criteria3=="Test"]');

Hi Kyle,It's some time since you posted this answer, however I am now running into the situation where I need to specify multiple parameters, are you able to provide me with a couple of examples of the applyXPath method doing a query using multiple parameters?Thanks in advance.Graham

Thanks Robert, I should have mentioned that I am already performing a for loop as above, however this seems like an unecessary and potentially processor intensive step especially in that there might 100's of records returned that I don't necessarily need as they are not related to the country I am showing, so I was wondering if there was a way of doing this at predicate level so that only the nodes with a matching country sub-item are returned. This of course may not be possible but it would be ...

I have the following predicate:var predicate = "$record.TopMerchants.Record[*]";var nodeitems = $data.resolveNodes(predicate);which searches an XML structure similar to the following: United Kingdom testing testing again United Kingdom testing testing again United States testing testing again This works fine in retrieving all of the records under the TopMerchants node, however what I really want is to be able to bring back records that have a specific country but I am not sure how this is d...

Okay so I have created a data connection using the Sample XML data method but I don't want to bind the data to objects to be populated dynamically. What I actually want to do is programatically populate objects with the data so how do you go about traversing the XML data??

I have created a connection to a sample XML file and was wondering how you would go about reading from that data source and storing the data using JavaScript so that different data can be displayed based on user choices (e.g. dropdown list)? Can this data also be stored so that an end-user can open the PDF without needing to have a local copy of the XML file on their machine?

We have a very specific technical requirement and we need to know if a combination of LiveCycle Designer and Acrobat (without the extensions and LiveCycle server) will fulfill our needs before we decide to purchase licences. Find below what we are wanting to happen:End UserA PDF form which has functionality that will populate set tables and charts based on the users selections from dropdowns, buttons, etc. The data needs to be embedded within the PDF but the form has to be dynamic so that the ch...

Thanks for the information. In terms of the charts I have seen the examples so feel quite confident in that respect, the issue I am not confident about is reading the XML data and storing it in the PDF and then being able to alter charts, tables based on buttons/dropdowns using the data that has been stored. The sample of storing data seems to highlight the fact that it cannot be used in interactive forms, so I was wondering if there is a solution to be able to store data within an interactive f...

No my intention is not to use LiveCycle server. What I want is for a user to open a PDF and then the embedded charts will update at runtime from reading data from Excel/XML. From the end-users perspective they need to do nothing more than open the PDF and the publishing perspective of the PDF needs to be as simple as possible.Graham

I am relatively new to LiveCycle and I have looked across the forums but haven't found solid answers to what I am trying to do therefore I was wondering if someone is able to answer my questions:1. Can you setup a LiveCycle for so that it will read from a set of Excel data files (or converted CSV/XML files) at the time you launch the PDF with a LiveCycle form in it. We intend to create Graphs and Charts from the data and wanted it so that for these to be updated, all that needs to happen is that...
