Filling in PDF forms for VHW

We have had a number of Veterans' Health Week (VHW) stakeholders contact us regarding difficulties with PDF forms and their not being fillable and saveable.

This is due to changes in the way some browsers (for example, MS Edge, MS Internet Explorer, Firefox, and others) handle PDF files.

To avoid the issue, we recommend downloading the form and filling it in using Adobe Reader as laid out in the Instructions section.


The following provides instructions for downloading, filling in a form and emailing it to the VHW team:

Pop-up menu from steps 3 and 4

  1. Identify the VHW file/form you wish to download (from those listed below)
  2. Select the file with your other mouse button (the right-hand-side one)
  3. A pop-up menu will appear
  4. Select "Save target as" or "save link as" or similar option
  5. Select the folder to which you want to save your file/form
  6. Open Adobe Reader*
  7. Select "File", then "Open" and select the file you saved (in step 5)
  8. Fill in the form, as appropriate (save as you go using your usual method or the "Save" button on the bottom of the form)
  9. Once finished filling in the file, use the "Save" button at the end of the form
  10. To email the form, select "Email"
  11. Select from the two options, as appropriate
  12. Wait for your email to appear
  13. Add any further information to your email, as you see necessary
  14. Send the email
