We've developed a very simple Active Server Pages (ASP) script which allows you to do no-nonsense Forms Data Format (FDF) collection via e-mail. Best of all, this simple script will work with Acrobat Reader.
Operation is simple, after having designed your PDF form, and added the form fields as required, add one a hidden field called "mailto". Set its contents to the e-mail address of the person you wish to send the submitted data to (e.g. email@example.com). Set the submit button to go to the FDFGateway script as installed on your server - don't forget to include the #FDF on the end of the URL so Acrobat knows what to do with the returned data. Ours is at:
When you do install it on your server, remember you'll need the relevant FDF Toolkit, available from the Adobe Solutions Network and also the CDONTS service as provided with the Microsoft Windows NT Option Kit. Of course, this all presumes you're using Microsoft's IIS. The concept is simple, and you could easily modify this script to work with just about any of the server side scripting languages.
OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
