Importing Form Data

Form field data can be imported from either an FDF, XFDF, or XDP file into the current document. Any form data from any of the Form Field Types will be imported.

Note: Form data can only be imported into the exact same form as it was exported from meaning that both the field type and name have to be exactly the same in order for the data to be imported.

Comments can be imported using the following formats

FDF: File format created by Adobe that is supported by most PDF applications

XFDF: Extended FDF file format created by Adobe that is supported by most PDF applications

XDP: An XML Data package created by Adobe that is supported by most PDF applications
