I'm trying to create a PDF Form that will submit data in to JotForm, and later, the PDF can be downloaded with the data pre-populated. What I would like to do is have the pre-populated PDF Form then "edit" the submission later using the Submission ID that would be occupying a hidden field. The problem is, if I submit the HTML version of the form with a blank editSubmission element, I receive an error stating "The Submission ID is invalid". I am assuming that the PDF Form would submit just like the HTML form, which would mean for every New Submission, JotForm will produce the same error.
Ideally, I don't want to keep two different PDF files (one with a hidden Submission ID for editing form data, and one without), so I would have to embed the hidden editSubmission element in the PDF, and keep the data blank.

To be honest with you, I do not understand exactly when you say Submission ID.
Are you referring to this:
This ID is automatically assigned.
If it is possible for you to include a screen shot of the "The Submission ID is invalid" message, and the link of form in question so we can be able to look deeper into and find a solution.
