Problem Combining PDF forms

I have a form that is filled out by many users, at the end of each month I need to combine the form into one PDF, however, when I do that every fillable field is the exact duplicate as the 1st page. To counter that I have to print each form as a PDF and then it allows me to combine without changing the other pages. Sometimes I have as many as 300 forms in a month and it is very time consuming to do this. Any suggests on how to fix this problem would be appreciated.

You can flatten the files before combining them. If you have Acrobat Pro create an Action (via Tools - Action Wizard) that executes this JavaScript code and then saves the file, and run it on your files:

this.flattenPages();

Then combine them to a single PDF.

Note that this process is NOT REVERSIBLE, so make sure you keep a backup copy of the files with the editable fields, in case you ever need them in the future.
