I am trying to convert my SXC to a PDF. Basically, I need an online form where the user can enter information and the formulas within each cell will figure the math for them. Is this possible? If so, can anyone help. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

PDF can't do that sort of thing.

Two solutions which might be of interest:

(1) Create a HTML form using Javascript for the calculations.
(2) Use an OOO spreadsheet with all cells protected except for the input cells.

CutePDF is a commercial solution that might be able to let you do what you want.

Based on tony's idea, an OOo spreadsheet could even submit the results to a web server using the same type of techniques as the spreadsheet described here.
