Hello Sarbjit,

Editable textboxes in PDF are not supported by Telerik Reporting and additionally Telerik Reporting is an embedded reporting engine, which primary goal is to analyze data and represent it in a human-readable format that is also suitable for printing. It is not meant to collect user input in any way, its purpose is only data presentation.

Therefore you will need to additionally process the exported PDF with a PDF library like iText.

All the best,
