Merge PDF documents into single file contains both XFA and Acroforms using Aspose.PDF - [Resolved]


We are evaluating Aspose.PDF for .NET for use in the company. The main task is to combine/package various individual PDF documents regardless of FormType(Static, standard, etc) into one single package. Previous version of aspose were used for the package, and we have encountered various issues such as when these PDFs are packaged together, dynamic fields in the package become unavailable/unfillable compared to when the form is an individual form which results in customer dissatisfaction. With the new version for .NET(19.7), we realize that we are still encountering these same issues and was hoping to know if someone could potentially provide solutions for us.



Thank you for contacting support.

Would you please share some source and generated files along with SSCCE code so that we may try to reproduce and investigate it in our environment.

Sample Package Name: 1130_NB3504BD_112011.pdf-NB3512BD_012014.pdf-NB3520BD_062012.pdf-NB3521BD_062012.pdf-NB3538BD_122014.pdf-PS1998BD_012014.pdf

Individual file names: consists of file NB3514BD_072017.pdf, NB3517MC_082018.pdf, etc which can be determined from the combined package.

The package and its individual files have been attached to this thread. It should be noted that not all files in the package have been put in there but only a few of the files that have issues. This can be tested by packaging those individual files themselves instead of having to package multiple files.

The packager file itself has also been attached to this thread to allow for some testing. There are few configurations that have to be done before the packager can work:

In the Local Disk (C:) folder,
Create a Temp folder,
Create a PDF_ISSUES folder;

In the PDF_ISSUES folder, create a src folder and a logs folder. In the Src folder, create a decrypt folder and in the decrypt folder, create a folder 1130, then put the individual files from issues in there then you should be able to run the packager.



@Farhan.Raza Hi as a follow-up… I was also hoping to know if there is an ETA for this post.

Thanks in advance


We appreciate your cooperation on this.

Shared Visual Studio solution contains several projects and many classes so for efficiency purpose, would you rather create a narrowed down sample application reproducing the problem part so that we may address your concerns well. Please share your kind feedback on our request so that we may proceed accordingly.

Hi @Farhan.Raza,

Could you please explain what you mean by I should create a narrowed down sample application reproducing the problem part? I’m a bit confused as to what you mean.


We mean that shared solution contains several projects and classes thus requesting you to share the minimum possible code that is combining different PDF documents into one so that we may proceed accordingly.

Hi @Farhan.Raza,

So, the least possible shared solution is given below. Be sure to make PdfPackager your startup project and it is very easy to follow the code from program.cs. Also, don’t forget to create the folders as instructed above. When the program starts, use the Aspose.PDF command.
