I work at public facility and want to do away with the paper forms. So, I've created a form in Live Cycle. After its filled out (using Adobe Reader?), I want it to be sent to a folder on our server. I've added an http:// Submit button and enter in the folder location (//server/Shared/TEST), but it never seems to make it there when I click Submit.
That's not submitting, so you can't use a submit button. (A submit
button connects to a script on a web server). But could you do it
You can't in general do it - a form which could write to files would
be a huge security hole.
machine. I'm not sure, someone else would have to fill in the details.
Thanks Aandi. One other question. So after they fill out the form, I suppose they'd have to go to file save. Would they publish the form to a folder on the server or ??? Basically, since I'm dealing with the publice (many of which don't have computer skills) I'm trying to make the process as simple as possible. So once they fill it out, they would just save it to a secure folder that we (staff)would then get the form from and use it internally.
