Multiple Form Filler is a Windows software program that allows you to easily fill out multiple document forms and spreadsheets with the same information. This is particularly useful for businesses such as doctorís offices that must fill out many forms for each new patient with the same information.
Using Multiple Form Filler
The main screen of Multiple Form Filler displays customizable input fields that ask you for information such as a personís first name, last name, etc. You are able to create information models that tell Multiple Form Filler what fields to display (what information to ask you to input). You can also create word processor documents and spreadsheets for Multiple Form Filler to insert this information into. These files are linked to the model so that Multiple Form Filler knows which documents and spreadsheets to insert the information into. Instructions for creating these documents and spreadsheets are given later in this instruction manual.
Once you fill in the text boxes on the main screen, you click on the OK button. You will then see the confirmation screen. This screen lists all documents and spreadsheets linked to the current model. For each document, you have an option to print the document, save a copy of the file with the information filled out under an appended file name, neither, or both. You make the decision by checking or unchecking boxes next to the document name. The default is to print each document.
There is also an option at the top of the confirmation screen to choose fast or high quality printing. The fast printing is done by Multiple Form Filler itself. The high quality printing actually runs your default word processor and uses it to print the document, then closes down the word processor. The main difference for most documents is that the higher quality printing preserves the margins of the document.
If you choose to save a modified copy of the document, a field will appear near the bottom of the configuration screen asking you for a name to append to the file. For example, suppose the name of a document is Insurance. If you decide to save a modified file and select the name David to append to the file, the new document will be David-Insurance.rtf, and it will be saved in your My Documents folder in Rich Text Format (rtf), which is viewable by almost any word processor.
For spreadsheets, the option is whether to save the file with the information added to the spreadsheet. The spreadsheets you create will have either a row or a column of markers showing Multiple Form Filler where to insert information. If you have Multiple Form Filler save the spreadsheet with the information, it will add a row or column of information to the spreadsheet and save the file. The default is to save the modified spreadsheet with the new information added. You can prevent this by unchecking the box next to the spreadsheet name.
Once you have provided all the information needed on the confirmation screen, you click on the Ok button. Multiple Form Filler will then print and/or save the documents and save the modified spreadsheets. You can then click on the Close button to return to the main Multiple Form Filler screen. All text fields on the main screen will be cleared when you return to it.
