Chapter 23. Assembling Documents with Merge > Creating Fill-in-the-Blanks Forms

Creating Fill-in-the-Blanks Forms

You may have a project that seems ideal for a merge, except that some of the information is variable, so it isn’t well-suited for a data file. Well, guess what—you don’t have to have a data file to perform a merge. You can merge with the keyboard—in a manner of speaking.

A form document can be created with Keyboard codes that stop and wait for the user to type in the information, rather than pulling it from a data file. You can create a detailed message that explains what the user should be typing at this point. After the information has been entered, the merge will move on to the next Keyboard code.
