To get the information form-fillable files to work, first it will be necessary to download the file from your browser.  However, we suggest you first type in your information and then print off a copy before re-saving it and closing the file.  In some instances, you may not be able to save the contents of each file due to your computer's configuration.  Always print the form-fillable file before closing it, so you don't lose the information.  If the form-fillable function is not working correctly, please try Firefox or Chrome as your browser to download the file.   That usually solves the form-fillable issue.  Thanks.
