54 Create a Form in Acrobat
With Acrobat PDF forms, you can collect data through the Web by either sending it to an online database or a specified email address. To send data to a web server, you need to have a CGI application on the server. The Common Gateway Interface (CGI) application collects the data sent from the form and populates a database on that server. Sending data to an email address is much easier because no database setup or CGI application creation is required. You can send either just the data itself or the entire form as an attachment to the email.
