javascript to write form field data to document property

I've created a pdf form in Acrobat Pro that is fillable AND saveable by user by saving-as with extended rights.  The javascript that works in Acrobat to write the form-field to a document-property works in Acrobat, but not Reader - security violation.  How do I do this?

    How exactly are you writing this data to the document property?

    Read the documentation of the "info" property more carefully...

    The Acrobat JavaScript API Reference.

    Here's what it says about this property:

    "In Adobe Reader, writing to any property in this object throws an

    exception."
