Answers / PDF Forms
I have created a form in Acrobat Pro 9 and placed on a web site with Dreamweaver. The form opens and can be filled out, but then when users try to submit they get the message - this operation is not permitted.

Exactly what is the sumbit script?If submit to a URL with a web script page there should be no issue.If submit URL is 'MailTo:" then the PDF needs to be saved and the saved file is emailed. Both of these features are not available to Reader. The PDF form will require special Extended Reader Rights being applied to the form.
I was trying to submit to "mailto:". Thanks for the help

what do you mean by " The PDF form will require special Extended Reader Rights being applied to the form."
I created a from using a word document, and I setup several check boxes that once they have been checked off, it would send and email, in Adobe Acrobat,
it works fine, but I am having the same issue as the person above.
how can i make this work using Reader?

A PDF file can be opened with Acrobat or Adobe Reader. Acrobat can save and email a PDF by design.
Adobe Reader is a free product that does not support saving of completed forms. This is like giving away the Gillette razor and selling the razor blades fro the life of the razor. Adobe would like one to buy the LiveCcycle ES server or Acrobat.
Do all of your users have Acobat?
