I use to be able to create a fill-in form, it would keep a copy of the forms I filled out when I selected to fill a blank copy, Adobe would keep the previous forms in the same file.  It would act as a database keeping all the information in chronological order.  I was also able to search the form's fields in all the transactions.  How do I save created forms with this feature or is it no longer available?

An older version of Adobe Pro.  The more I work with the new version, I find it's more complex.  Not as easy for a end user.  There is some java script that was helpful but ran into another barrier where new spawned pages only calculate from the first original form.  I've been told there are a lot of answers here on the forum, I'm just having issues finding them.

Was this a very old version with the organizer?

It was at a previous job, about 10 to 12 years ago.  I couldn't tell you what version.  There is an easy script that you can use once you make your form a template.  By using add button from the interactive objects you can then go into preferences-actions-select actions -Run a javascript- then paste the following script and include the name of your template:

var expTplt = getTemplate("Template name here");

expTplt.spawn(numPages,true,false);

This works great but I haven't figured out how to use it with auto calculate.

I'm puzzled and I'm not sure how to script it with 12 auto calculate fields.

I work for a non profit company with a tight budget.  I'll get the form up and running maybe without some of the features for now.
