I'm using iText to update a field in a PDF file. I'm trying to update a field, but it will not update. It takes a blank PDF file called "OriginalFile" and it is supposed to create a destination file called "DestinationFile." Do you know why the field will not update? Even though the line of code " form.setField("Name", "Joe");" is executed after "PdfStamper stamper2 = new PdfStamper(reader, new FileOutputStream(DestinationFile));", the field is supposed to be updated with a new value.

PdfReader reader = new PdfReader(OriginalFile);
PdfStamper stamper2 = new PdfStamper(reader, new FileOutputStream(DestinationFile));
AcroFields form = stamper2.getAcroFields();
form.setField("Name", "Joe");
catch(Exception e)
