FIle with date and currency controls


when I create a document with formula fields (for example date or currency) and export it to PDF formular as FDF or PDF, the properties will be inored. Result: the text/data that you enter by using the pdf formular with acrobat reader will not be checked against the entered field format.
I just have this problem for formulas that should be used by more than 6.000 employees. I hope you can solve this shortly. It's an important migration issue!!!

Regards Georg

Reproduced. Acrobat reader doesn't care what you enter in the fields.

LO 7.003 

date value now in pdf and fdf in date field

currency value is not in currency field 
in acrobat reader

so partly solved for date but not for currency.
