Then, click the Refresh button on your browser and try to open the file again. For other browsers, please check the browser documentation or Help Menu.

On Completing the Forms Electronically:

Many forms are provided as enterable Microsoft Word® and Adobe PDF files. You may print them and complete them by hand, or you may fill them out directly on your computer. Unless otherwise indicated, you may not submit them online, but you can fill them out electronically and print the completed form.

Adobe Acrobat Reader will allow you to save the blank form, but will erase your entered data when you save it. To address this problem, you could purchase Adobe Acrobat Professional or download another software program, such as the free Foxit Reader.
