embed PDF to excel

Hi I need some help with creating a excel file that we will continue adding data to. I have made a fillable pdf using adobe but I would like that every time someone fills out a form and clicks the submit button it will transfer the data to the excel sheet. How could I do this??

Up to 10 attachments (including images) can be used with a maximum of 3.0 MiB each and 30.0 MiB total.

The PDF format was invented by Adobe, while Excel was invented by Microsoft. So technical inter-operation is not great between those formats. You can create fillable forms in Excel by locking/unlocking cells and applying worksheet protection. That would be much easier to implement.

Maybe using VBA macros and User Forms instead of PDF is an easier approach.

In case of PDF, check the documentation and specialized forums: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/setting-action-buttons-pdf-forms.html.
