Topic: Converting PDF to Word and keeping form functionality

I have been asked to convert a PDF form to a Word document or RTF. When I did so, I lost the functionality of having the cursor move from blank to blank in the form itself. In fact, I can't even get the cursor to cooperate with me.

From a physical appearance, the form converted great with the help of a product named LeadWorks but again, it seems to have lost its functionality.

I can change the labels of the data entry points but can't get the cursor to automatically go to where the blanks are at like it was capable of doing in the PDF form itself.

I'm frustrated. Can anyone tell me if this is feasible, that is keeping the functionality in addition to the physical appearance of the form itself.
