Can you create a facsimilie of the form using your application
software? I have use this method using the WordPerfect table feature
and it works very well, especially when the original form was created
on a typewriter.

If you scan the form, you can use your software application to trace
the scanned image to create a new form. Either way, use different
file names for the blank form and the filled-in forms. That way, you
will always have a blank to fill in when needed.

It occurs to me that I should be able to have the forms scanned, then
bring them up onto the screen where I could use them as a background
visual template, typing in the details and adjusting the linespacing
exactly as required to fit the screen image. I should then be able to
load the original form into the printer, print out the text and presto!
everyting fits perfectly!

I would be most interested to hear from anyone who has done this.

Which scanned-file format is best suited?
Which software package would be best suited to this task?
(The required text already exists as Word6 files).
