how can I merge data from an excel spreadsheet into a pdf fill in form in Adobe Pro?
Jennifer McCloud 428 days ago
The most straightforward way would be exporting the Excel data as tab-delimited file, and then import that as a Data Object, interpret it and fill the according values into your form.
Hope this can help.
Do you mean a "mail merge"-type operation (creating a new PDF for each row in the spreadsheet), or just importing a single set of values from Excel into a PDF?

I have a spreadsheet with client names,address, SSN, etc that I want to import into an existing Adobe fill-in form to create a new form for each.

OK. There's a built-in option in the PDF Maker plugin in Excel and Word that can do that, but it's Windows only and only in some versions, I believe.
In addition, I have developed a script that can do it without relying on this plugin and can process any type of plain-text CSV or text file and offers more advanced naming options. See here:

There is a great suggestion in this discussion titled Can I import data from an Excel spreadsheet to a fillable PDF Form?
It explains how you can import data from Excel into a PDF form, which requires that you set a few things up in Excel.
