Form filler

I have a lengthy set of forms to fill in. I would like to do this on the PC rather than by hand. Anybody suggest some free software for this?
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

If they are pdf forms then this will do it http://www.tracker-software.com/product/pdf-xchange-viewer and if they aren't pdf then use something like CutePDF to create them

Re: Form filler

Thanks Jim, I already have that but can't get it to do what I want, which is: to scan the forms and fill them in. At least not unless I upgrade to the full version (I guess)
I wondered if Adobe Reader may do it? my objection to AR is everything else that goes with it...!!
