I need to count the number of fields in all pages of PDF form.  Is there a quick way to determine this w/out scripting?  

 

For instance, page 1 had 10 text fields, 5 checkboxes, 3 signature lines.  I would like to get the total count of 18 in total.   This chould aloso include the counts of subsequent pages.  

 

Thanks in advance for any direction.

Without the script, I don't think so.

Ok and with script?  I'm just not knowledgeable on scripting.

Thank so much Nesa, this workly nicely.  Would you code this to do some math for me and generate the results in hours for in #Fields * 3 + 30 =  XHours. 
Exmample:  10*3 + 30 = 1 Hour

You can calculate hours like this:

var nFields = this.numFields;
var hours = (nFields*3+30)/60;

You can use the FormReport plugin which is part of my free abracadabraTools, it lists all fields properties in a CSV file:
