Hello everyone,

I've been searching the forums but haven't been able to find an answer, so I hope someone can help me out with this, or at least tell me it's impossible.

I have created a form in Designer 7.0, with the default Print and Email buttons. Everything works properly.

Once the form is filled out, let's say on another computer with Acrobat Reader, and the user clicks the email button, the form generates an XML file that is sent by email to the right recipient. Perfect so far.

What I would now like, however, is to just double-click that XML file in the email and have it fill out the original form instead of having to open the form and import the data. In the environment this is going into, associating XML files with that sole application is not a problem and is, in fact, desirable.

Is this possible, maybe through command-line options or even a batch file?
