You should be able to scan the file, open it up with Adobe Acrobat. From there you should be able to export it into a word document and be able to fill out the form from there. Hope this helps!

I now have office2010 how do u scan a form in to be able to type on the form?


Hi,

what you want to do, is not possible. Only way to properly write on a form, is that you have the original digital computer version of it, sure you can scan it, but you can not use / write on the same way. Sure you can use the computer to ADD text into the form, if you scan it as a picture, and then use the Microsoft paint program to add text on the fields. But its not the same as having the original digital form to write on.

Or then I'm not informed on how to Scan a form, to turn it into a form and then to fill out that form on your pc.

convert the image file into tif format and in tif you can higlight the text fields and the texts can be extracted seperately via OCR software available in the tif image viewer itself.
hope this helps!

Have a Dell laptop. Have to fill in form in Adobe 9.


If the designer of the PDF document has correctly created the file, you can use the _free_ Adobe Reader software to "open" and then "fill-in" the form, and then "print" the modified PDF file.

P.S. Any "free" copy of Adobe 9 is a "bootleg", i.e., "unauthorized" copy, and the copy probably also contains a computer-virus. Stay away from counterfeit software!

I own canoscan Lide-25. I want to scan forms and fill in the blanks of the form from my computer then print for my use. How to do this? Am I to buy any splecial software other than OCR already provided.


I wouldn't use OCR, too difficult. I would save your scanned document as a jpeg and edit in Photoshop. From Photoshop thay can be printed or saved as a pdf file.

I want to scan a form and save it, and be able to fill in the blanks later. I can save it as a pdf document, but can't edit it.


When you scan it, the original manufacurer's software should allow you to save it as a Word document or some other editable format. PDF, JPG, TIF, and other image formats probably won't work.

Need to scan a form to be filled out to computer


If you scan a form onto a computer, it won't behave as a form by default. This is because the computer is just storing a picture of the form, and doesn't see it as a form.

To make a scanned form into an electronic version, you will need some software that lets you define the regions of the form that can be filled in by the user. the full version of Adobe Acrobat lets you do this, as do the less expensive programs CutePDF Professional or PDfill.

Basically, you scan your document into a pdf format and use the aforementioned software to define which regions on the form should have typable text, checkboxes, etc., then you re-save it as a fillable pdf.

This works well, I do this with all my rental applications, etc.
There is a little bit of learning required to do this, but if you spend some time with the program and its helpfile you'll be creating forms with the best of them!

Editable forms with Adobe reader?


With adobe profesional you can make a PDF form, and send to the recipients. They can fill the form with Adobe reader and send it to you back, but only the data will be sent to you, not all with the pdf.
You can collect the data with your adobe profesional. Your programmer of medical paperless system can make the program to put that data in your database.
Here is the simple procedure:
1. Create form: Open adobe prof, menu advance --> Form --> create new form. You will go to Adobe design to create the form, there you can also retrieve your scanned document.
Don't forget to put "submit button" and your email address.
2. Then save as pdf form. It is ready to be send to your recipients.
3. The recipients will fill the data and send to you by pushing the "submit button".
4. You will receive the data in your mailbox, as an attachment of email. You can use adobe prof to collect it, example to put it in Microsoft Excel.
Go to menu advance --> form --> Create Spreadsheet from data files. A dialog box will come out, put in the files you received from your recipients. then go on, you will have the Excel data.
For put it in your database of your system, your programmer should create a program/ included in your system's program.

For Guest, to fill up is easy, just open the pdf form with Adobe REader, fill it and click the submit button.
