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:
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.
Click the “Fill in bulk” option in the right sidebar.
Next, you will see a pop-up window with detailed instructions. Follow those steps to successfully autofill a PDF with Excel.
You will see the table that includes all cells from the documents in multiple rows.
Some fields can be added in the editor. Add specific instructions to every point.
If there are no items, you may copy and paste them or add them manually. Not every template presumes that all parts have been completed. For example, you may indicate some information from your side and then send it to someone, requesting that they add their data and signature.
Next, generate the new document. Name it and add a description if necessary. Send to a recipient’s e-mail or store it in your account.
How to Batch Fill & Edit PDF from Excel?
To fill documents automatically, upload your documents using pdfFiller's uploader.
Select a document in My Docs and click ’Fill in Bulk’ in the right pane. Click ‘Add Fillable Fields’ to create fillable fields for text, number, date, signature, photo, and checkboxes.
While creating fillable fields, use the Database Field Name to identify the fields that you would like to pre-fill.
The Fill in Bulk page displays a table containing the file name and data fields. Each row represents a single task and will produce a single document. To create more documents, please use ‘Add Task’.
In the dialog box that will open next, enter the name and description of the new job. The Job List allows you to save generated documents and prepare them for distribution via ‘SendToSign’ or ‘LinkToFill’ or for downloading the documents to your computer as a read-only PDF.
Any of the documents that you’ve created contains the fillable fields you added and the data you entered in the table.
