HELP! with returned distributed form, all data invisible til you click

HELP! with returned distributed form, all data invisible til you click

HELP! with returned distributed form, all data invisible til you click

(OP)
using Acobat X Pro I created a form and used the distrubuion feature. I did the email it manually later and sent them out.
One form came back and every box appears empty until you click your mouse in the box then you can read it.
It also "adds" the data when I open the reponse data file.
Is there a way to either fix their form so we see it and print it out or import it back into a form from the reposnses file?

Or anything... I need to be able to print this and read it for formating mistakes.
