I would like to create forms in PDF...What I would like to do instead of creating the text fields in PDF is create them in Word placing a tag on the cell and when convert PDF will capture the text box. Is this possible with any plug-in even. I called Adophe and they informed me plug-ins are available for this but I could not find any.

We currently have forms on the web in HTML which I am converting to word the cell fields are carried over all I would need to is format the document the way we want it and rename the cells...The reason why I do not want to do it PDF is becuase I have approx. 100 forms and I know at some point they will be modified I would have to re-create the entire form in PDF where as in word it would be easier to re-create then I could just create a PDF and have it completed.

Hiya and welcome

Looking here:

http://www.pdfzone.com/bguide/product/SearchResults.asp

There is Acropad, but you have to join to look at the actual program, but this is where you can get it:

http://www.acropad.com/

It may not be exatcly what you're after, as you said Word.

Also, there is this:

http://www.go2pdf.com/product.html

It may take a bit of playing with the plugins, to see which one will work, but the one above mentions this:

You may convert Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access documents into PDF formats, convert AutoCAD file into PDF, convert image formats to PDF, convert plain text file to PDF
Thats for Go2pdf, so you may want to look at that first.

Regards
