    PDF Text box shows up empty in exported PDF?

    MHamberger Level 1

      I am trying to create a form, doing most of the work in InDesign.  I have a table with 4 columns.  The first column is the item, second is QTY, third is RATE, and fourth is TOTAL. 

       

      What I have done is create a second layer with text frames converted to PDF text boxes overtop of the last three columns in the table. (I can't figure out a way to turn a table cell into a PDF textbox.  Is there a way to do this?)  My "RATE" Field is set to read only, but when I put text in it and export to a PDF, the field shows up empty. 

       

      What am I doing wrong here?  Do I have to put the prices in through Acrobat?
