I have a form with fields I want to populate from an Access database, and then allow the user to fill in other fields after reviewing the populated fields. I have been able to connect to the database and populate the fields on the form. My problem is with other users of the form. Is there any other way for the user/client to connect to the database without having to have the user/client machine have the DSN name for ODBC or having Acrobat Standard installed for ADBC. We have Reader Extended the form and each macine will have Reader 7 or above, so that is not the problem. We have users outside of our network and will not have control over what is installed on their machines. Any help would be appreciated.
