glad you asked. The Acrobat Reader reads Acrobat documents. If it could
save them, it would be named Saver.
There are limits imposed by Adobe which forbid the creation of any plug-ins
which do allow modification or saving of the document.
The only options you have is to submit the data to a CGI script which then
does the rest, or to wait a few more months for the Acrobat Business Tools.
Apparently the references to the Formular API plug-in by Building Systems
have been toned down considerably on their website, so the information
about this rather hard to get.
Submitting to a CGI script requires that you run Reader under a correctly
set up web browser. The script them can make whatever you want.
The Acrobat Business Tools are essentially the viewer part of Acrobat 4,
which would allow local saving. I don't know about pricing yet, but they
say that they will be aggressively priced for corporations...
Hope, this can help
