Topic: importing form data

Hi,

Using Acrobat 4.0 I have created a user-guide for a database. The PDF that contains a screen shoot the db with its fields as “hot spots” and a help section with its own fields that are populated as users place their mouse over a db field. This has been achieved by creating FDF files, for each db field and the import form data action. . I know I could do this using hidden fields, but I felt this would be easier to manage.

My problem is this all works well on my c drive, but I would like to post it on a web site, and I cant get the FDF files to import. Without doing any thing server side is it possible to pull in the data, say using javascript ? not that I'ave used it much.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers Kully
