Please bear with me as I am quite new to PDF's.

I want to take the forms data from a PDF and pass it to an ASP.

I understand there is the in built PDF function, the 'Submit Form' button where you specify a URL and the Export Format, but when I choose HTML it redirects me from my chosen URL to a Temp file, even if I ask the page to redirect it still redirects me to another temp file. After reading other posts I believe this is caused by either IE or not using absolute URL's, but to use an absolute URL causes me other problems.

If anyone knows a workaround for getting the forms data from the PDF into a HTML page of my choice using ASP I would be grateful.

Alternatively PDF form data into XML would also be OK, although when I choose this export format how do I then view/get at my XML string using ASP?

Simply I am using IE5 to view the PDF with a Button 'Submit Form', wanting the PDF form data to be sent to the URL specified so that this data can then be manipulated using ASP.

If its a third party add on, so be it but I do not want to give up yet!
