I have a couple of documents I would like to include some fields on. Some of these fields need to be updated every time the user enters them, but some need to be updated on first use only. For example their company name is going to remain the same, but their customer info is going to change each time the document is accessed. The users will be using the reader only.

I have been reading that there are ways to use data, but I have not found some clear cut directions for the novice. I have created a test document with two fields (Company & Customer). Can anyone give or point me to directions or samples provide user interaction, including storage of the company data.

While I am familiar with VB programming, I am not familiar with the Adobe IDE or javascript. I have only been using it for a couple of days.
