I want adobe acrobat to stop saving half-filled pdf using script.

Suppose there are some fileds like country, state, District, Village, Address. All 5 fields are mandatory. If all those fields are not filled, then it should not be saved on click of "Save" in pdf. I am able to show error message that "Mandatory Fields can not be blank". But pdf is getting saved on click "ok" in alert box. I am using Adobe Acrobat DC enterprise edition.

Preventing the file from being saved entirely is not possible. However, it is possible to use a script to force the fields in the saved copy to be blank, until all the required fields are filled-in. You can do that using this (paid-for) tool I've created exactly for this purpose: https://www.try67.com/tool/acrobat-validate-required-fields-before-printing-or-saving
