    here is the deal. I have this form in PDF file, where i have only taken the modificatons option on the security options.
    user may insert data.
    As i have acrobat whriter i can save my data in it. but a user that has not, using reader, is not allowed to save is data and send it to me.
    this is a form for someone to apply for tutoring services in our company.
    any help on this I whould appreciate it very much.

    We use fillable PDF forms at my company but actually prefer they don't save and email back, for virus protection reasons. Most of the people who download the forms fill them out, on-screen, print them and fax them to us. Just an idea.

    Thanks for hint

    Hello! thanks for willing to help.

    We've thought of that. but we need to export data from the forms we receive to other documents we use, as they are part or candidatures to become service providers as tutors or trainers of our company. so the data on the PDF as to be available for us.

    the problem is that the users using only acrobat reader can't save their data and send tu us by e-mail. why....

    According to the Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Pro documentation, you have to use a CGI application to route data to database.

    If you find another way let me know!
