Not sure if I’m in the right forum, but here’s what I’m needing. I want to be able to create some user forms that will contain basic client information entered into text boxes, and will also contain check boxes and drop down boxes for selection of types of services needed. I would like there to be and a command button able to clear the content (reset) those text boxes, and have a second ‘clear all’ button that would completely reset or clear the form for the next entry, so as to minimize the risk of errors due to info left over from the previous entry. I would also like to set up a tab index for those text boxes (and other controls) so they can be scrolled through with the tab key for ease of data entry. Examples include client name, phone, date of birth, company, SSN. It would be great if the SSN could be in three fields so after the first 3 digits are entered, then the curser automaticly moves to the next 2 digit field, then to the last 4 digit field. Even better would be an error check, so that the form could not be completed of saved until the correct number of digits are entered.
Some of the forms would be printed only, others emailed in .pdf format so that the content could not be changed by the recipient. This can be done with MS Word utilizing activex controls and then saving as a .pdf, or using VB forms for the printable versions that are not to be emailed, but the thing is the if users are still having to save as .pdf files anyway it would make sense to use an Adobe tool to create them (I think). I’m thinking maybe Adobe Acrobat is the tool that could do this, but since have no experience with any other Adobe products besides Photoshop I just don’t know. I’m hoping someone can help educate me on this and hopefully help me make the correct selection. Thanks.
