Next button not working in Adobe Reader

Created the database connection to MS Access for all records using the next and previous buttons. It works in the full full version of Adobe 8, but does not work in Adobe Reader.

Hi Renee,

Adobe Reader does not have database connection capability.

Hope this helps,

If this is true. Why can you see the first record from the database in Adobe Reader.

Hi Renee,

The reason it is showing on your form in Reader is probably because the first record was already there, and not actually pulled from the database. However, I was wrong in saying it can't be done. If the PDF is enabled with the proper Reader Extension then it can connect to a databse. However, the particular Reader Extension requires the LiveCycle Reader Extension Server ( a fairly expensive piece of software). Do you have LiveCycle Reader Extension Server?

Hope this helps,
