You can write the form data to a FDF file first, and then call com_PDFForm_MergeFDFIntoPDF() function to combine FDF and PDF together.

You can use "com_PDFForm_SetTextField()" and "com_PDFForm_SetCheckBox()" functions to fill the data to PDF forms directly, the following is a VBA example which can be used from MS Office VBA to fill the PDF forms from VBA code directly,

--------------------------------
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

strFolderDir = ActiveWorkbook.Path & "\"

Set VeryPDFFormCom = CreateObject("VeryPDFFormEXECOM.pdfformcom")

szInPDFFile = (strFolderDir & "test.pdf")
