What you want to do is not that simple. You need to hire someone to create the code that will save the data from the form and send it to you. When you open the file with the form data it can populate the values you need in a new copy of the original pdf file.
Thank you. Somehow I figured it would be more difficult and convoluted
than it appears initially. I'd still like a little more detail of the process of what direction to look for in answers.
Here's an answer.
I did more research and trial and error and ended up finding that by going through the form process the first part was to "Run Form Field Recognition"
Next, I had to create and place a button on the page and turn it into a submit button (fairly easy).
Next, I went into the parameters for "Distribute The Form".
Once I loaded it on my website I found that completing the form and sending it went a blank form which the recipient was supposed to complete and sent back to me. So I tried an experiment. I figured the two form, the one on the web site and the one received were different somehow. I copied the received form to the website and used it in place of the original.
Now when it sends the form, I end up getting a completed form with the information in place.
There are still a few small details to work out, but it about done.
Users of Reader cannot send back the pdf file with completed forms unless the file has extended rights. You may not use this feature if it will be used with 500 users or 500 uses, it violates the Acrobat license. If you want to send back data from the form you need a script.
