I would really appreciate some help with cutting my time in filling  the same several fields in multiple documents. Does Nitropdf have this capability?

Thank you very much,

LaNard

Possibly- if your PDFs have the same form field names, then you can use an FDF (form data file) to fill in the data for you.

The article is here: http://kb.gonitro.com/knowledgebase#/search/fdf/000001586

What you want to do is fill out the common fields that are shared by all of the files, then use the Forms tab, Export button to generate a file containing the form field names and answers.

To use this, open up one of the PDFs you want to fill out, then use the Import button on the Forms tab, select the FDF file, and then hit okay.  If your form fields match the fields from the original PDF, all of your answers will be populated in the PDF.

I appreciate the assistance but I'm not familiar how to use the JavaScript in relation to the FDF inorder to import into a form.

I believe, I figured it out without using JavaScript but it only fill in one document at a time is their a batch feature which can fill multiple forms using the FDF Form?
