      Creating a form in FileMaker then exporting so its identical in either word or excel

      Post

      Hello

       

      I need to create a complicated and intricate form in Filemaker then export it to either word or excel so that it looks identical to how it was created in Filemaker. I am using Filemaker 8.5 with server software. I will have drop downs in the Filemaker form. The other solution is to export to a PDF that allows for entry into fields.

       

      For example admin needs to export a inventory form populated with data from the database into excel or word so that it can be emailed to contact, contact needs to be able to fill in certain details (which is not possible when I export to PDF), then email the filled in excel form back to admin.

       

      I have been using Filemaker for awhile but I am not familar with the programming side of the program, Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
