Is it possible to enter data into a PDF document?
I got several forms as PDF .

It may be if the original documant isnt locked from editing,you can usually find out by opening it and if there is a padlock icon in thr bottom left corner of adobe then it has some form of encryption,right click the padlock for options as to what u can do with it.

there is no padlock icon as you suggested.

the full version of "Acrobat", but just have the "Adobe Acrobat Reader" it's generally not easy...

However, assuming you want to complete the form, then print it out, you can use "Foxit" pdf reader, (do a search on google).

It's a free pdf reader. it will also allow you to type onto the pdf form. You can't save what's produced as a pdf, but you can print it out with the overtyping.

(If you have a free pdf creator, you could, "print" to that and create a new pdf!)

Good luck,

It depends on whether the form was designed to be completed using Adobe Reader. click here is an example of one that is - and is great fun to complete as well (tongue in cheek!).

I have installed the Foxit pdf reader as recommended by Simsy and very happy with the result! Its very useful and easy to use as well.

Thanks all.
