Respond to a Form Using Acrobat: Overview

            To respond to a form using Acrobat, either click the link within the email message or open the form attachment within the email. You may need to save the attachment to your computer first, depending on the email client you use. Once you open the attachment in Acrobat or Acrobat Reader, you can then fill-in the form fields.

            Once you complete the form, click the “Submit Form” button in the taskbar at the top of the form window. Doing this opens the “Send Form” dialog box. Ensure your correct email address and name appear within the “Email Address” and “Fill Name” fields in this dialog box. Then click the “Send” button to continue.
