Hello,

I have a 100-pg PDF workbook that I am trying to set up where a student can click a submit button that will send just that individual page to an instructor. I was able to set up a .fdf link and was successful sending a test file to myself. (page 6 of the Test document attached.) However when I had two of my clients test it out it wouldn't work. One got the attached error, the other one the submit button wouldn't work at all. Thoughts? I am not familiar with java script but if somebody could walk me through that I think I could figure it out. (I also tried making just the submit button active but it gave the attached "invalid file" error.)

Thanks in advance!

There's nothing wrong with your submit, as long as the PDF viewer is capable of executing it.  Which viewers did your test users use?  Ideally this type of submit should only be performed from Acrobat/Reader.
