help needed completing an adobe pdf form

  johnnyrocker 19:03 15 Aug 05

i have been sent a questionnaire as an attachment in pdf format, and i need to complete and return it, my problem is i do not seem to be able to put the required information into it so i can mail it back,
i have tried saving it but still have the same prob, i use open office and am reluctant to print,edit,scan,and mail it as a lot of people have trouble opening my docs and me theirs.
anyone got a solution please?

I have filled quite a few of these in, you need to open them in Adobe Acrobat to fill them in.

This blinking site, I'm sorry for the double post, it gave up the ghost after 4 minutes after I clicked the Post response, so I clicked it again.

What version of Adobe do you have?

the full version of acrobat will be needed to change data on a form, and it's not cheap.

You could try in preferences and have a look in Forms to make sure all the relative boxes are ticked.

You may need to update it to a later version, depending on your operating system either Adobe 7 for Windows XP or Adobe 6 for all other operating systems.

this site is driving me nuts this evening this is 5th attempt at posting responses.

joe thanks for your link but all it gives me is strings of gobbledegook and internal server error 500

octal i take it you are suggesting i find these in properties?
