Saving dynamic forms problem


Level 4


I have created a form with a dynamic subform to capture repeated information.  I have saved it and enabled reader rights in Acrobat.  When I go to save the form with the subform repeated it does not save the repeated subform, just the original subform.

Any help greatly appreciated.

To say I have deselected 'form requires server side data binding and / or scripting' from the properties panel.  This is now saving the data however the repeating subform is not showing after I have saved it.  When I click the button to repeat it opens up again with the data showing.  I would like it to always be showing if possible.

Make sure the form is set to preserve scripting changes automatically in: File>Form Properties>Defaults.

Thanks everyone. I managed to get the form to save the dynamic sections. I forgot to tick the box to repeat sub forms and I also unticked the server side scripting box from the properties panel.
