FDF Exporting


FDF and ASP (Exporting Data from FDF/PDF)

There are a few types of ways to populate a PDF Form.

Two ways are:

1. Populate by requesting Data from PDF Submit Button

2. Populate by requesting Data to a desired PDF File

The following Code illustrates the Creating, and Outputting to an FDF

<%@ Language=VBSCRIPT %>

<% Option Explicit %>


‘ Resume to next statement on error

On error resume next


‘ Next we add our declare and set our FDF Objects, and set MIME Type(Output).

Dim FDFAcx, FDFin


‘ Set the Output MIME Type to FDF before we write anything to buffer

Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.fdf"


‘ Create FDF Application

Set FdfAcx = Server.CreateObject("FdfApp.FdfApp")


‘ Create FDF output to PDF File

Set FDFout = FdfAcx.FDFCreate


‘ Set the PDF File URL to output the FDF to (Not needed for Importing FDF)

FDFout.FDFSetFile = “http://mydomain.com/My_PDF.pdf”


‘ Next we add values to the FDF Output file

FDFout.FDFSetValue “Fieldname_One”, "Value_Of_Field_Onw"

FDFout.FDFSetValue “Fieldname_Two”, "Value_Of_Field_Two"


 ‘ Write the Status to show user the values are updated

FDFout.FDFSetStatus “Page Updated with new Values”


‘ Next we write the response to the PDF File through FDF

Response.BinaryWrite FDFout.FDFSaveToBuf


‘ Close the FDFout Object



‘ End the Response
