Hello community,

 

Part of my work involves filling out a fillable pdf with countless addresses, account numbers, and other information. The fillable pdf has fields for Name, address, city, state, and zip (as well as other infomation regarding an account).

 

I don't mind filing this stuff in; however, after i fill it in the pdf, I also need to create a list of the same names and addresses in the following format

 

name1

street address1

city, state zip1

 

name2

street address2

city, state zip2

 

. . . and so on for 3, 4, 5 . . . 

 

I would like to see if there is an easy way to take the fields off of the fillable pdf and put them into the word document using a tool or some script.

You can export the form data to a tab-delimited text file and then open that file in Word and copy the date from it.
If you want a different formatting to the data it's possible to use a script to write it out to the JS Console, or even to a text file, and then copy it from there.
