Default Scanned Document?

Hello everyone. I wasn't sure where to post this, so I apologize if I'm in the wrong place.

I am trying to help a friend come up with a paperless solution. We need to scan a business form and be able to edit specific fields on that form. I have experience working with several different databases, so collecting the information is not a problem. The question I have is how do I make those fields print out in the exact location on paper? Basically, I want to scan the document and use it as a template. Any ideas?

I suggest you use the full version of Acrobat and set the various fill-in areas on the page as form fields.

The Acrobat online help should be enough if they're just simple text fields, but there are plenty of resources on the web if you need to do anything more difficult.
