I created a form in Acrobat XI and added information to the fields.  I created multiple files, each with different data.  I want users with Reader to be able to see the completed forms using Reader, but not be able to edit the fields.  Hopefully I don't have to go through the settings under File -> Preferences -> Security because they are dreadfully complex.  Hopefully there is a simple solution.

Thank you Gilad, for the prompt response.  Can you briefly explain how to
"flatten" the file?  There is no option with that word in any of the
dropdowns.  Also, where would one find the "Action" option?  Again, I'm not
seeing it.  As noted, I am using Acrobat XI.
Regardless, I think that I found the solution: File -> Save as Other...->
Archivable PDF (PDF/A).  When I did that, it saved the file, but gave an
error message that I ignored.  Information in the fields was then visible,
but not editable.  Also, I was able to link multiple files together using
Create -> Combine Files into a Single PDF... such that each record was
different.
Thank you again.
