    Accepted Solution

    There is no Acrobat Writer. You probably mean the full version of Acrobat. You need the "Professional" version to create interactive forms.

    Just create your PDF file from Word as you would normally do, then load the PDF file into Acrobat 7 Pro and use the different form tools to add interactive forms elements to your document. You cannot add the form elements directly in Word, this can only be done with Acrobat.
