Have you ever dreamt of a solution that is capable of filling a PDF template instead of manually doing it yourself? Everybody knows that we spend excess amounts of time copying and typing detailed information into documents. What would your reaction be if it was possible to effortlessly resolve this problem? Well, we have great news. It is now possible to easily autofill PDF from Excel. Now you can create automatically pre-filled documents with the new Fill in Bulk function.

How Do I Autofill PDF Forms from Excel?

Do you want to complete the fillable fields of a form faster? The below steps will guide you through the process and solve this hassle once and for all:

  1. Open the My Docs tab. If the necessary documentation is already in your pdfFiller account, open the folder that contains it. Select one or several forms. The maximum number of PDFs is five.
  2. Click the “Fill in bulk” option in the right sidebar.
  3. Next, you will see a pop-up window with detailed instructions. Follow those steps to successfully autofill a PDF with Excel.
  4. You will see the table that includes all cells from the documents in multiple rows.
