          I am going to assume you are talking about some health form that you want to populate with information.  You can scan the form as a graphic.  I find PDFs are best for forms.  Then import the PDF into the layout.  Then place fields on top of the form where you want to have information input. 

           

          Container fields are for storing hexidecimal files such as a Word Document or a JPG picture.  I think that is the wrong direction to go.  Just go to Layout mode and import the PDF into the layout directly and place fields on top of it. 

           

          Best of luck!
