submit pdf forms
#1
Sorry to bother, I am a complete novice to this process, please forgive my ignorance.

I have created a submittable pdf form that I am trying to save to a web database either as an individual pdf, html or fdf file.

I have successfully installed form tools, have the database set up and seem to be extremely close to making this happen.

However, I am not clear on where or if it is possible to embed the form tag code - "<form action="http://site/formtools/process.php" method="post"> <input type="hidden" name="form_tools_initialize_form" value="1" /> <input type="hidden" name="form_tools_form_id" value="1" />" - into the pdf form.

I keep getting the error " ERROR process.php requires a form ID for processing. Make sure your form contains a hidden field with the name "form_tools_form_id" that's passing along the form ID."

I am sure this is an easy fix, but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I hope you've already worked this out, but for the benefit of the rest of the community, here's the answer:
You need to create hidden fields manually in your PDF creation tool. (Livecycle or Acrobat). So make a hidden field for form_tools_initialize_form & give it a value of 1. Then make a hidden field for form_tools_form_id and give it the value that you see in the value field when you are creating that particular form. When you've built your form, you'll need to then delete the form_tools_initialize_form only.

Form tools have version details with the general discussion to take data with the extensions that can be shared on it. I have to make a report on this so I decided to buy college essays with the firms to download the documentation with the thread mods to get.
