Forms and data extraction

I know that you can create form of various varieties in Libreoffice: Writer forms (odt) Xml (forms) converted to pdf forms (pdf) send them and get them returned BUT I can't find anything about how to extract data from any of them. Either: per form basis per folder option for a number them - I have a visual basic script for word forms which extracts all the data from a set of them in a specific folder and adds it to a single excel spreadsheet

  • I guess there must be something in libreoffice like this or at least someones script but I've found nothing! Knowing how good Libreoffice is you probably just need to select an option somewhere?
