Overview

Thanks to Adobe Acrobat and the cross-platform PDF files it creates, we can all crawl out from under the mountains of paper that clutter our desktops and counters. Organizations like the IRS, which now lets you download important tax forms from its Web site instead of trudging to the post office, have discovered Acrobat's powerful ability to streamline the once tedious and time-consuming task of data collection. With Adobe Acrobat Forms, you, too, can create your own electronic forms and reduce both your paper piles and workload.

Adobe Acrobat Forms covers everything you need to know to build an attractive, functional form, starting with the basics of form design and continuing through the data-submission process. On the design side, you'll learn how to create and arrange all the interactive items that make up an electronic form, including links, buttons, pop-up menus, and digital signatures. The book also shows you how to connect your Acrobat forms to an external server, allowing it to automatically transfer submitted data to a company database or Web site. Author John Deubert realizes that even the best designed forms are useless if you don't know what to do with them, so he also lays out how best to harness the raw data once you've collected it and even supplies form files so you can follow along as he covers the techniques.
