Save as command button

Is it possible to have a command button that will do a "save as"?

If so, how can I do this? (Need to make a form as simple as possible)



Also, when inserting new fillable form fields I would like the field to show what they need to do in that field, such as entering a number, but when they do the instructions need to be removed when they type in the number.



Example - inside the box it says "Enter Tag Number" - when they start to enter it only the number is in the box. They should not have to delete the message.



Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, but it is not easy because of security restrictions. You will need to create an application folder script or get the PDF certified.

I just found the solution to the "save as" question.



There is a command when you insert a button. When in properties you go to the Actions Tab then "Execute a menu item" and find what you need and then add it.



Now all I need to do is find the answer to my other question.
