    Is it possible to export the data from fillable fields into indesign?

      Just the basics:

       

      I'm on a mac, running CC

       

      We are circulating PDF forms where users have to input information. Instead of copying and pasting the data into indesign, we wanted to see if there was a way to export the inputted data directly into indesign? I've attempted to export the data into excel but we're running excel for mac 2011 and I'm wondering if there's a compatibility issue with the exports (constantly have to be repaired). I also find that when the files are repaired that the entire form is included.

       

      If I cannot do a direct export to indesign is there a way that I can export just the filled data to excel and create my own .csv to do a data merge in indesign?

       

      Thanks,
