I am trying to create a travel form. I have one column where a person adds their mileage, a second column that contains the reimbursement rate, and a third column that is a calculated field of the two previous fields. My problem is that in the field where the user enters their mileage, it needs to only allow 2 decimal places. As it stands, the user can enter as many decimal places as they wish and it rounds it to two places. If it is not possible to limit the number of decimal places, is it possible to multiply by the number that Adobe rounds to. For example, if the user enters 2.345 and Adobe rounds it to 2.35 because I have it set to two decimal places. I need the calculated field to use the 2.35, not 2.345 which is what it does now. I think I need to use some sort of Javascript to do it but I am not familiar with the language. Is there and easier way?

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
