I had an excel form that I made into a pdf.  Now how do I make it fillable, so my agents can just put the information in.  Sorry, still pretty new to this.

OMG.  This has been a very trying task.  The links were of no help.  I already knew how to make a PDF.  I needed to make it where my client could fill out the information I was requesting.  For anyone else needing help, here are the easy steps to take.  It took me 2 seconds to do a task I have spent countless hours on.  Hope this helps the next guy.

  1. Open Acrobat: Click on the “Tools” tab and select “Prepare Form.”
  2. Select a file or scan a document: Acrobat will automatically analyze your document and add form fields.
  3. Add new form fields: Use the top toolbar and adjust the layout using tools in the right pane.
  4. Save your fillable PDF
