Hi,

I am creating a form using Acrobat Standard 9 and can't find the option to add a Time/Date field so that when the user fills the form in they will get a little calendar drop down to choos the date. I have Acrobat Pro 8 on another computer and it works just fine. Is it not an option in Standard 9 or am I missing something simple?

Thanks,
Jay

You will need Acrobat Pro to do almost all advanced operation. The Calendar Popup is not available in the Standard versions. It's possible to add JavaScript to print the current date, but that's about it.
