File extension .FDF
|Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Input Form
FDF (Acrobat Forms Data Format) is a file extension used for Adobe Acrobat Form Data. This type of file contains structured data and other information associated with a PDF (Portable Document Format) form. It is used to collect data from a PDF form, store it in a separate file, and then send it over the internet for submission. The file has the .fdf extension and can be viewed in any PDF viewer and Adobe Acrobat Pro software.
Features and Benefits of FDF Files
The FDF file carries certain benefits. For example, the data collected in a form can be exported from the PDF form to an FDF file which can then be sent via email or posted on a web form. There is no need to send the entire PDF form. Furthermore, data validation included in the FDF file ensures that all forms sent are complete, accurate, and valid. When the server receives an FDF file, users can save information into databases or log files.

After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .FDF) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .FDF extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .FDF file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .FDF extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .FDF extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .FDF file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .FDF file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .FDF file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .FDF file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .FDF file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
