I know I have fixed this previously, but I recreated a form, posted it to our website, now the user gets the error "You cannot save data typed into this form. Please print your completed form if you would like a copy for your records". They have reader. The last time I created a form, I remember this issue, but now I can't seem to find the fix.

You have to set "local save" capability for your form with Adobe LiveCycle Reader Extensions.

I definitely didn't do that before as I don't have "Adobe LiveCycle Reader Extensions" and it worked, think I'm missing something else.

Hi

You need to use the 'Extend Features is Reader' option from Acrobat Pro Advanced menu (Acrobat 9) or if you have Acrobat 8 use ' Enable Reader...' from the Document menu.

At least I think that's where it is in 8 ;o)

Once saved your users will be able to save data in forms with the form. Ask them to clear out the Temporary Internet Filesthough as if they download it from a website the old version may remain in cache...
