Rotate a PDF 90 degrees (Portrait to Landscape)

I have a PDF that I opened in Illustrator CS5 and it was Portrait.  I tried to save it in Adobe Acrobat but when I opened it in Illustrator CS5, it was still in portrait mode.

I could not see a way to rotate this PDF 90 degrees.  I am basically just trying to add some text to the form so I don't have to write the information.  (When I open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro, there are only about 3 fields I can complete and I have about 4 other fields to complete.)

How can I rotate this PDF 90 degrees?

You could always print to pdf from the print menu and rotate it then. Next time it is opened it will be correct.

You should not reprint a PDF, this is not a good idea for many reasons. It would naturally remove the form properties and also messes with the structure.

Follow leakim971's advice to use the menu option and save it

Printing a PDF doesn't remove the Form Properties. That is a fallacious statement.

Sorry I left out one of the words in my OP - one of the downsides to my illness, I cannot multi-task as much anymore.

I did try to save it in Adobe Acrobat in landscape but when I opened it in AI, it was still in portrait mode.

There are only two fields that I can "complete" in Acrobat, hence the reason I was trying to open it in AI.  I can print the PDF to a PDF and then use AI to just add the fields, but I thought there might be a way to rotate the PDF in AI.

You can add fields in Acrobat Pro by selecting Edit Form Fields assuming you have Acrobat Pro.

Actually, in Acrobat Pro, I went to Forms - Form Tools - Text Field.  I did not see anything that helped when I went to Edit (I only had things like cut / copy / Select All / De-Select All / Check Spelling / Preferences).
