    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.

    You did not waste all your time, as you can utilize the design, just recreaet the fields.

     

    1. Save a copy of your illustrator file with all input fields deleted
    2. Save a copy as .pdf
    3. Word >> Insert Picture >> insert
    4. Right click on picture >> format picture >> Layout >> Behind Text
    5. Move picture into place, pull the margins blue arrows if you need to go closer to edge

    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.

    Do you have a recent version of Acrobat Pro?

    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.

    Sounds like a fruitless endeavour to me all the way 'round. Why would someone running a business want to do invoices in Word? Invoices should be done in a database.
