I have created a number of forms in acrobat. I want to be instructed the simplest way to create text fields in these forms. The user would tab through the forms and enter the text. There would be a hint for the user. Upon completion of a particular entry it would be automatically saved in a data file and in the event of other forms being used the data file would automatically merge with the new form.
In other words I want to start with the form not the data file. I want the data file to create behind the scenes and to merge with other documents.
Initially I want clear instruction with a demonstration as to how to do this. Later, when I have the method working I may need ongoing assistance to convert a large number of files to this method.
I have adobe professional 7 and would like to use adobe for this project.
