First post to the forums. I'll do my best to use the right terminology to explain my question.

I have Acrobat Professional 7.0.9 to work with.

I do mutual fund trading for client accounts at my work. When I send a batch of trades for a client's account, I save a .pdf version of what is called the order ticket with the details of the trades.

What I want to do is create an object/form (right term?) that I can paste on to the .pdf order ticket and then fill in a little bit more information about the trades I've sent. After that information gets filled in, the .pdf gets imported into our document system and filed away never to be seen again.

Basically, I guess I want to paste a small fillable form on to a .pdf. But, I've never created a fillable form, let alone tried to embed one in a non-fillable .pdf.

Any help anyone could offer would be appreciated.
