I have been posed with a problem.
We are using FDF/PDF Forms on the web to gather data. When we first wrote these forms we enforced a specific data type and format to many of our fields. Due to some recent design changes and instability with Acrobat/FDF we want to change any field that has a specific or special formatting and turn it into just plain text of a limited length.

Is anyone out there familiar with a way to change field formats without having to open each individual document and go field to field changing the format? Is there some type of Adobe tool that would allow me to do this, or can I write some kind of VB or C++ program to do this?

Let me know if I have not stated my problem clearly enough.
