TIP 70: Completing a Form and Using Auto-Complete

In Acrobat 7, users can fill in a form and submit the actual form (or just the data it contains) to a database, Web site, or email address. Acrobat lets users save the completed form, save the content to reuse another time, or print the contents. You can even set preferences to have Acrobat assist your users by suggesting information used in similar form fields. If you fill out the same type of form numerous times, such as health or dental insurance, reusing the information saves a lot of time.

Filling Out Forms

To fill out an Acrobat PDF form, you move the pointer inside a field on the form and click. You'll see the I-beam, which tells you that the form is active and that you can start to type. Other types of fields using buttons, checkmarks, and so on show variations of the Hand tool, such as a pointing hand. Click an option to select it, and then press Tab (or Shift+Tab) to go to the next (or previous) field. When you have finished, click the Submit button, if it exists. Alternatively, you can print the form, or export the data to a separate file, depending on your rights.
