Topic: Export form data button not working in Reader, only full version

Hi, Thank you for the responses to date. I've had a closer look at the problem I've been having and I had given the wrong description of the problem I'm having. My apologizes... My submit button is supposed to export form data. On my computer, which has full acrobat, I can click the button and the Export Form Data dialogue box opens, and I go from there - no problem. This form is intended for internal use at my work and I want the users to be able to submit the form data within our directory. For some reason (unknown to me), when I try my form out on an Acrobat Reader only - the button clicks, but is dead - no action. I can't figure out why...we are using 5.0 and the Reader version I've tried my form on is also 5.0.
The rest of my form fields work great, so I'm not sure why this one field is not working.

It would be great to hear back from someone...

Thanks for your time and kind regards,
