The product matrix is in a bit of flux right now, because Adobe Acrobat 8 was announced last week. There's probably a 7.0 matrix somewhere on the site or in the docs, but I'm late to a meeting right now and can't search.... :( Additionally, the word "save" above could be intended in different senses... might mean save to the local drive, might mean save to the server. I'm also not positive that the form will be filled out in Reader... might be that you're designing for Acrobat Standard users, not positive. The basic distinction is that the free Adobe Reader is a reader, with some collaborative abilities (commenting, etc), while Acrobat (either Standard or Professional) is a creation tool. Acrobat users can set permissions on documents they create for varying tasks done in the free Reader. Adobe Acrobat 8, either Standard or Pro, will be able to create documents where people using the free Adobe Reader can fill out forms and archive these forms to their local drive. My memory is that Acrobat 7, both Standard and Pro, could create documents where users of teh free Adobe Reader could fill out forms and submit them for remote storage, but neither could create forms which Reader users could save to their own local drives. I don't have Acrobat Standard on my machine -- they put Pro on here at the acquisition -- so I can't check. The documentation would still be the best bet, but my memory is that both Acrobat 7 Standard and Acrobat 7 Pro could make forms which Reader 7 users could fill out and save remotely, but it's Acrobat 8 which adds local file-creation to the mix. Docs would be a better source, though.... jd -- John Dowdell . Adobe Developer Support .
