Answers / PDF Forms
Good morning,I am trying to create a custom dynamic stamp in Acrobat 9, windows 7.What I did so far is the following;1-Created my custom form in PDF (A name, title and signature) which works fine when I add it in my stamps.2-Opened dynamic.pdf, copied the dynamic field of the first form (Revised) and copied it in my custom form (the signature).3-I see the date and time on my new customer stamp (The signature). When I right click on the dynamic form field from my custom stamp (The signature) and go to to calculate tab, in the last radio button, I have the following formula : event.value = (new Date()).toString();AFDate_FormatEx("h:MM tt, mmm dd, yyyy");I save my new custom stamp (Signature).I close it. Then I open acrobat and add the new "Dynamic" custom stamp I created (The signature)from manage stamps.I then try to add my stamp to the PDF document I opened. I see the stamp with the name, title and signature, plus the date is there, but it's the date and time from when I copied it in my custom stamp in the first place. The time never changes.If I go back in the stamp, go to forms and add or edit fields, the formula is still there... but the time won't change.I have checked similar posts (Only one actually) and the link in the post is broken.Help please...

What is the name of the stamp? To find out, open the stamp PDF and select "Advanced > Document Processing > Page Templates"The stamp name is the name of the page template. For a dynamic stamp, the very first character needs to be the "#" character.

I have added the #, what I wrote was #test=signature. I saved and still the same issue. The time won't increment.
Do I need to import it somewhere? Does the # name need to be the same as the PDF file template?
I replied to you other posting, which I saw before this.
