Topic: Form data to flow into pdf

I would like to create a pdf where:
- Page one will have a table with contact info fields that the user can enter in the information
- the rest of the pages will be pre-layed-out documents that will include that form text automatically included in the copy of those documents. These will be for printing only.

you can create two fields with the same name, and they will mirror the content of each other. But, there doesnt seem to be a way to have the surrounding text move and wrap properly. The second field (the non-entry field) is just in a layer above the other text, and if the text in the field is larger than the space allotted for it, the text bleeds on top of the surrounding text. Any ideas?

Again, this is for print only and I'm using full Acrobat 5.0. Thanks so much for your help.
