I want to put a link to a fillable .pdf form on a web site and when someone fills out the form they click "submit" or "email" and it emails the form back to us.
The button in Acrobat forms is supposed to work like that but it doesn't work at all. If I open my .pdf form in Acrobat Professional XI and click the "submit" button, it is emailed to me just fine. In Acrobat Reader nothing happens when you click the "submit" button. If the .pdf opens in Internet Explorer instead of Reader, same, nothing happens. It only works when opened in Acrobat Professional, so is unusable for the general public.
Is there any solution to that problem?
The only other option I can think of is to create a standard web form and submit the information to our database and then pull the records up into a form locally (here) to be printed. They have to be printed and signed here, regardless. Just having the .pdf emailed to us would have been preferable and easier, but I can do the form->database->form route if I have to.
Thanks for any suggestions.
