    Use excel file to fill extensive PDF form?

    Hello everybody,

    I am working for a government organization (intern) and they have asked me to link an existing PDF form (34 fillable fields) to an Excel sheet.
    They want the excel sheet to have a column for every required field, and rows being individual forms. To put simply, you would fill out all required fields going left to right in Excel, and this information would then be plugged into the proper boxes on the PDF. The next row would be another document, just with new information plugged in, and the Excel sheet would slowly grow. And so on.

    While I am good with Excel, this is out of my experience. Is there any way of doing this with my conditions? I cannot download/utilize additional software as our computers are heavily locked down. I am not admin. All I have is Office suite 2010, Adobe Reader XI, etc.

    Any help or input is greatly appreciated.

    Tim201110, Ya tozhe russkiy. But anyways - I already saw that link and read through it. I don't have the same software they are using - I only have Reader, I cannot edit the PDF whatsoever. No tools, no javascript, etc.

    It's not that I cannot _get_ it, it's that I cannot install anything on these computers :/
