Users on my network have Adobe reader on their computers. When they fill in the form and try to save that form, it tells them that they can't save changes (tells them that they need Adobe standard or adobe professional).  Is there anyway for them to save the changes of that form? (Can I somewhere in the back end of the form tell it to allow  users with Reader to save changes). I have Adobe professional.

You can reader-enable forms so that users with just Reader can save the partially filled in forms. To do that, you either need Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional - as long as you do not exceed the limitations that are specified in the EULA (e.g. max. of 500 users will submit the form back to you), or you need to buy Adobe's LifeCycle Reader Extensions server product (expensive), or you need to work with a service like FormRouter.com to reader-enable the forms for you.
