The term "Exchange" means that it is an Acrobat 3 product. More and more,
your forms will no longer be Acrobat 3 compatible, and you will have
troubles handling your forms.

For Acrobat 4, Adobe decided to no longer sell individual components. Well,
according to a message coming through the PDF Forms mailing list, Adobe
announced the "Acrobat Business Tools" at the Internet World show. This is
a product which is essentially Acrobat 4, formerly known as Exchange. So
far, I have not found any pricing, but the press release states that they
will have "aggressive volume licencing". The product is supposed to come
out first quarter of 2000.

If you need a solution for just locally saving your forms data, you might
look at Building Systems (

Hope, this can help.
