    You might want to provide more information. You can place a fillable PDF form on a web site so that others can access it. You can set up a fillable form with a button or link that cause the form data or the complete form to be submitted to a web site. If none of these things is what you had in mind, post again with more info.

    How did you create that form?  Adobe Reader cannot create forms or PDF files.

     

    A link to that form may help.

    Not sure what you mean; how would it be submitted to a web site?  Upload to a web folder?  With the same name, replacing the previous document with the same name?

    You just echoed what I said. How did you configure the button? Do you want to send the form data or the complete form? Do you have a program on the web server set up to process the submission? Tell us in your own words what it is you want to do.

    The reason the button looks and behaves differently is most likely because it is not being opened in Adobe Reader or Acrobat. The Firefox and Chrome browsers have their own built-in PDF viewers and have limited support for PDF forms. Chrome has the most support, but it is still far from complete.
