Topic: How do I load a *.xfdf on doc load?

I have a *.pdf document (acrobat 5.0 document) that has some form elements. I have exported the form into a *.xfdf file. What I'd like to do is write out a new *.xfdf file at whenever I want and allow people to load the *.pdf file into a browser and have the *.pdf import the *.xfdf at load time.

What I've done so far is in Acrobat 5.0, I've set a page action (Document->Set Page Action), Page Open action to reset the form and open the *.xfdf file. The problem is that when I try to open the *.pdf in a browser, it launches acrobat (not the reader plug-in in the browser) and fills the *.pdf there. The browser just has the empty *.pdf in it.

How do I get the browser to open the *.pdf and load the *.xfdf form into it?

Regards,
