Lori, I created it using LiveCycle and forwarded to someone to distribute. I can’t seem to get the import data to work correctly as they all come back with the same file name, but even when I change the file name it won’t load into adobe file to view the results. I can only get a blank data showing.

Hi John Van Oort,

How did you distribute your form? Using the Distribute command in Acrobat? Was this form created in Acrobat or LiveCycle Designer?

Thanks,
Lori

I sent out the form, but what I get back is a xxx_data.xml attachment. How do I get that to be usable?
