Topic: forms trouble shoot

I have adobe acrobat professional 7.0, I’ve used it to create a form, and the form is designed to be emailed as an attachment, saved, filled out, then submitted. It was also designed to be backward compatible with acrobat reader 5.0.

The form has a submit button that saves the data only as an *.FDF file. That file is then sent to me via an email attachment.

So far this works, sometimes!

Some have received the message “You have to be running inside a web browser in order to submit this form”

I don’t know what software config’s were used by the people that were successful. Some may have the “full” version of acrobat as apposed to the reader.

So…this is where I am, trying to figure out how to make this work more consistently. So that users with browsers other that IE and readers as old as 5.0 can respond.

Any guidance is appreciated; I’m interested in learning more on this topic (forms).

Thanks in advance!
