i have designed a invoice in illustrator cs6 , i want to save it as .doc for Microsoft word so my clients can edit all invoice blank fields and send to their clients, please let me know how to do it.
You can't. You have wasted your time. That's the brutal reality of it. If you want it to be editable, build the data fields natively in Word or Acrobat. Your AI stuff is only good for being imported as a WMF file that provides the frames and other graphical background for your word or you use the exported AI file as the basis for a PDF form, but that's all.
Hi, I have never designed a invoice in word , and later i was informed that client needs word invoice, can you show me where can i learn designing invoice design in word from dot, i dont want ready made templates to start with.
You did not waste all your time, as you can utilize the design, just recreaet the fields.
Not sure what verison of word you have, but this is from word 2008 mac. Sorry my MS Word is not that great, but these instrucitons should be in the ballpark of what you need.
In recent versions of Acrobat Pro there is a decent Export to .doc filter.
You could try it, that is, save your .ai file as .pdf, open it in Acrobat and do an export to .doc (notice the export options).
You need to fine-tune in Word, of course.
Thanks Kurt Gold, I was trying this for many months and was not able to convert it so effectively as i don't design in word, but now its very easy, illustrator then pdf and then save as doc , thanks again.
Hello Jet great knowledge was shared from all member participating in this discussion, and all have learned something from this discussion, personally i have learned a lot for converting any design to word format, as per invoice is concern it was my clients requirement, and he is just starting a company, later he can sure go for database like tally software to accompanist his work. I thank every one here on discussion to spare their precious time , and it was a great knowledge flow here. and this will even help others too later coming to this discussion. Thank you Parul and Vikram
