How to create Macro in PDF

How to create Macro in PDF

Hi, Guys,

I often work on PDF forms need a lot of text fields, like a long table with several columns, how can I create these fields?
Right now, I am copying and pasting, and changing the name of fields for each column, Is there a smart way to do it, like write a macro?  

RE: How to create Macro in PDF

There are no macro options in Adobe Acrobat.  There is an option to Batch files.  Try looking that up and see if it meets your needs.

If you don't have Form Wizard on Standard, you will need Acrobat Pro 9. Form wizard will look at your document and put in text fields. It generally fails at other types of form fields, like radio buttons. I would highly suspect (cause I've done it) that Form Wizard would find cells in tables, and make text fields for each one.
