restrice acrobat form field based upon user
Posted on 2004-09-07
I have some acrobat forms that I will be posting on the web for our clients to fill out. There are fields that are "for office use only", so I was wondering, short of hiding them and then un-hiding them once they're submitted, is there a way to make it so that when the clients open the file, they cannot fill out the field, but when they submit the form (we're submitting it via a mailto: link, so it's just attaching the file to an e-mail) and we get it, the processing department can then use the fields. I know that we can open the file with acrobat and change the field from hidden to visible, but is there a way to make the field hidden until submitted or something similar?
