    How can I enter data into the form PDFs that have a table in it?

    Asked by kyoprogram on September 30, 2015 at 03:40 PM

    My team would like to supplement their use of the online form with a PDF form to save data that they are tracking throughout the week.

    I noticed when I download the PDF version of these forms that if there is a table within the form, it does not allow an editable field to save that information.

    Can this be corrected?

    Hi,

    If you change the inputs in yours matrices from "numeric text box" to "text box", the PDF of the form should function properly:

    Here is my test form with the changes made:

    If you clone the form to your account and create a PDF from it, you will see that matrices allow for input:
