Not sure what forum to post this in as I did some in Acrobat 9 and some in Designer 8.
I created a name and address form and a dropdown combo in AA9 then saved and closed it.
I then opened it in designer 8 and placed a "send by Email" button and closed it.
I then opened the pdf file in Reader 9 (as a user would) Then filled out the form and clicked the "send by Email" button (sent to myself) it arrived as an .xml attachment and would not open....Just gave this error message
Adobe Reader could not open 'poolcuetip_data(1).xml' because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example. it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded).
Is there a Fix for this error ?? (tried it several times)
Can I put a "send email button" on the Acrobat form without having to open in Designer to do it.? If so How ??????

I think you may be missing the point - there isn't a generic script
for everyone. In general, one gets written by a web programmer for the
job in hand.
not be reliable since:
1) Some people use a web browser to receive and send email. Your button
will not work.
2) Some people will use a non-supported email client. For example, on
the Mac, my email program Mailsmith won't work. Neither will
Thunderbird. On the Windows side, my email client is Agent. It won't
It is nice that Adobe offers the possibility of using some email
clients, BUT since it doesn't always work, it is an invitation to
It is better to post the form on the web and use a script to get the
information on the form. If you want, the script can email you the results!
You should be able to open the XML file, but you will have to import it to the form in Acrobat or Designer. I am not sure why you created the form in Acrobat and then went to Designer to create the submit. You should have stayed in Acrobat. Now you can only deal with the form in Designer.
The closest there is to a generic script would be formmail (or cgimail) that is a script provided by many providers that simply requires some hidden fields in the form as to where to send the e-mail. This avoids the e-mail hang up of the client machine. The down side is that only HTML forms (or data submission) are accepted by these scripts.
