I am creating a practice solution in which I will fill data in a pdf form, and then transmit it the client for e-signing.  So I don't want them to enter data - that is coming from my MS Access database.  So the form that I look at has lots of fields.  The form that I send them will have only two fields: signature and date.

 

So any tips on how I do it?  do I flatten the form, make it a form again this time only with signature blank and date for fields?

Yes, that's one option. Or you can sign the form yourself (using a different signature field), and set the field to lock all fields (except the other signature field and the date field) when signed.

Sorry, I am not sure I understand.  If it is form that only has a signature blank for the client, do what exactly?

Add another signature field, go to its Properties and under the Signed tab set it to lock all the fields except for the ones you want the user to be able to fill in, then exit Form Edit mode and sign that field yourself.

So when I fill the form with MS Access data, I lock all fields save the signature field for the client?

OK.  I will give it a try.  I really want to do it all in VBA code.  (Click button on form that saves the ready to sign pdf forms to the client's folder)   Any resources on how to do that?
