Yes, you can. It has been a long time since I did so and I can't
remember how. However, although the user can fill in the fields they
cannot save the filled in form to hard disk. All they can do is print
it out. That is a restriction of Adobe Reader. The workaround is to
have the user install a "print to PDF" application. There are free ones
for Windows and Linux. I think it's built in to the MacOS.
