Hi sure the document is attached. I have converted it to word myself however the converted file doesn't allow me to input data in the fields required. Additionally once converted the input to the totals fields is out of line etc...I have attached both the pdf and the converted word file fyi.

Thanks for the reply. I tried converting the files and they are coming out similar. The problem in converting PDF's is that it is a "best effort" conversion given the complete differences between how data is stored in PDF versus docx format. Why not re-create the document from scratch given the documents are quite small?

I would have no clue how to do that. Is that something you could assist with please? Ideally I would like the document as shown in the word attachment I sent you and in word format...

Expert:  Techie_Ben replied 3 years ago.
Yes, I could have a look at doing that for you tomorrow (getting late here on the east coast in the US). However I am going to send you an offer to adjust the amount of the question given it will take time to complete two forms. Thanks again
