Hi, I have a lot of pdf files from which I would like to read the text and also the values of the checkboxes, I included an example. 

Is there a way to export those ticked checkboxes with their values or do you have some tricks. I tried several options but so far I could not succeed. The boxes with text is no problem. 

The sad thing is that at the moment people are typing again this information in sheets, so an automated proces is welcome.  

Many thanks in advance, 

 

Marjorie

The problem is those fields are not filled-in at all. The tick-boxes you see on the page are not part of the fields, but static text. That's why it's not showing up when you export the form data. You need to make sure the users use the actual fields, and then it should work just fine.

You must know that checkboxes that have the same name and a different Export Value acts as radio-buttons (only one choice).
