Creating fillable PDF forms in Acrobat XI Std. or Pro. that allow recipients using the free Adobe Reader to enter data is easy. All you need to do is open the Tools pane, Forms panel, and select the Create command. You can start with an existing PDF document, a Word or Excel file, or any other type of document. You can even scan an existing paper form. This tip looks at how to create a fillable PDF form using an existing Word form. The Create process automatically converts the Word file to a PDF form and looks for characteristics that indicate form fields, such as underlines or text boxes. These objects will automatically be converted to interactive form fields within Acrobat.
