Either datafile XML or data XML contained in the PDF document is invalid.

Expected Result: Not an error

Any Workarounds: I am able to read other pdf documents from the IRS, like the same 4506-T (2015) version.

Please feel free to download the attached document or get the one from the IRS, just search for 4506-T (2017). Use the cfPdfForm tag to read it and then try to dump the results. If you don't get an error, please post here. Thanks.

Hi, Can you please share the f4506-t form for 2015 or whenever it used to work? It will help us debug the issue faster Thanks, Kailash

Hi David, You can see the XML data in the XFA PDF by using the following code: {code} <cfpdfform action="read" source="#expandPath('f4506-t-2015-09-00.pdf')#" xmldata="x"></cfpdfform> <cfdump var="#x#"> {code} The xmlData contains the meta information about the form. Will this solve the problem for you?

My organization is upgrading from CF11 to CF2018 and we are experiencing this issue when trying to read in PDF Forms during testing. Forms that ccan be read in CF11 are throwing OP's error in CF2018.
