    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.planetpdf.com/tools.asp?webpageid=550&TBToolID=1976

    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:

    Thats for Go2pdf, so you may want to look at that first.

    Regards
