Is it possible to place a field with a colored background behind the =field you want to be filled in and set the background of that field to =transparent?

If I understand correctly, PDF files can not save or import data when =read with the Reader. If the Reader allows a user to submit data, can't =that data be saved and re-used? Perhaps I won't be able to import =information from other forms when using the Reader, but I will =definitely need a way for users to be able to save their forms with data =intact. Perhaps I could create a program that would rename the PDF file =name to a name supplied by the user for the name of the transaction. =For example, if the real estate agent was selling a house to "Jones", =he/she could name the transaction "Jones" and later retrieve all the =Jones forms. The program would rename the pdf files to include the name =Jones and then use this to retrieve those forms. Does anyone have any =recommendation of what program would be a good choice for this. Any =third party tools or kits that may be helpful to me?
Thanks again for the help.
