Hi,

Have a look at Paul's LockAllFields solution. You can download it in Paul's post here: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3168183#3168183.

I have a version of it here as well: http://assure.ly/yDtfsM.

Hope that helps,

Ok I see it but how do I copy it into my form? Or do I need to write a script for it?

Also should I be using LiveCycle instead of Acrobat Pro for this function?

Hmmm...

Did you create the form in LiveCycle Designer (XFA Forms)? Or in Acrobat (AcroForms)?

The solution I posted is for forms created in LiveCycle Designer.

You will be able to lock fields in AcroForms, but I think you would need to target each field individually (eg a different solution to the one posted). If you have created your form in Acrobat, you may get better advice on the Acrobat forums.

Hope that helps,

Niall
