Your question header, about adding a date picker, is wildly different from the question in the body of your post.
Which is it that you are looking for: a date picker, or an action to send a specific e-mail to an e-mail address?
Thanks for your response. Der! I must have been a bit tired.
Basically I want both!
I'm trying to put together a pdf template form on a shared drive for others to use to record incidents and send back to me
I would like the form to have a date picker, a drop down list of locations and a submit form button which allows the user to save the document to a folder automatically and attaches the form to my email address but they have to click send manually?
Can you help?
Sorry, this got buried in my inbox. Did you still need help?
If I understand your situation, you want people to grab the form, fill it out, and they save a copy and the data also comes to you. This is all do-able, but so far it sounds like it could also be a web form, and when clicking the submit button both the submitter and you would get e-mails with the data. The advantage of the web form is that it's easy to evolve and change as necessary, and changes are instantly available.
You can have a date picker, a drop-down list, and a submit button all on the form, regardless of whether it's a PDF-based form or a web form.
Again, my apologies for this taking so long,
Thanks for getting back to me. I agree a web form would probably be better but
1. I wouldn't know where to start to build a web form
2. Its for use by staff in a major public company and many of the staff are technophobes plus to get it signed off could take some time
3. The fillable form needs to be as simple as possible where clicking a few buttons does it all plus all they have to do is enter information they need to record
4. The submit button would send the document to addressees in a distribution list
If can point me in the right direction i would appreciate it

It sounds to me like you would benefit from looking over the Acrobat Pro help pages:
Several of the linked pages have explanations and illustrations for how to do some of the things you want to do.
Oh, and building a web form is easy, with Adobe's FormsCentral product - and FormsCentral is the place where you posted your questions... it's a separate product from Acrobat Pro.
I hope that helps,
