On my Mac book pro- to open a pdf file- msg comes (Using Safari)

The document you are trying to load requires Adobe Reader 8 or higher. You may not have the Adobe Reader installed or your viewing environment may not be properly configured to use Adobe Reader. For information on how to install Adobe Reader and configure your viewing environment please see http://www.adobe.com/go/pdf_forms_configure.

The question is: what type of PDF is this? When you get this message you are trying to open an atypical PDF. For example an XFA forms technology based PDF. Where does this PDF come from and what is it for? Is it an electronic form?

What you're seeing it the Shell-PDF of an dynamic PDF form (aka XFA form). This happens because you're using a PDF viewer, which doesn't support the dynamic contents of this particular PDF.

You'll have to use Adobe Acrobat Reader/Acrobat 8 or newer. Safari or Apple Preview are not useful for this purpose.
