    Hi everyone, hope this is the right place for this.

    I have a client who wants me to create a PDF form which allows the user to input data, save a copy and then email it to her. But if the user doesn't have Adobe Acrobat (aka everyone, therefore those with the reader only, ie everyone) can't save a copy; only print it.

    So I'm sure there's a setting that allows the user to save a copy of the form with their inputted data saved. I've Google'd it but can't find much help, so I thought the trusty WDF community would be able to help me out.

    BTW I'm using Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro.

    Do you mean online or offline?

    I thought with Adobe Professional, you can create a PDF form ... that is, a PDF
    with text boxes, check boxes, etc. ... that can be displayed on a web page and
    the user opens it and fills it in just like any other form. Then, it gets submitted.

    But maybe you're thinking about an offline kind of thing?

    I've heard of the online thing, where the user can submit the PDF and with ASP it gets thrown into a database or something. That's not what I want.

    What I do want, is for the user to download the form, fill it in, and then email it. Probably not the most efficient way, given PHP online forms, but thtat's the way we're working at this time.
    So I'd say that's offline.

    You're right about the Adobe Pro.
    I don't think you can do the form and save thing without having the pro version.
    You might want to look for an Adobe forum for a concrete answer.

    I certainly hope that's not the case. If it was, then I condem the stupid person at Adobe who thought it up.

    Perahaps an Adobe forum would be better. I'll ask there and see what I get. Thanks for your help.
