A many users have found out the hard way, InDesign form fields do not transfer well using InDesign's export to PDF. It is best to provide space for form fields in the InDesign document and export this simple file to a PDF. Then use Acrobat's Form Tools to add the form fields in Acrobat.

I cannot say that we have had a problem and we generate hundreds of PDFs from InDesign, each year.
I will admit that I have encountered some seriously messed up PDFs but I do not have the time to backwire them and attempt to discern the origins of the issues, so they may not have been generated by InDesign.
But we go back to the Pre-InDesign 1,0 beta and started beta testing PageMaker 1.0, so we began falling into the best practices and methodologies Adobe has shown us.
