The internal help system available within Designer is enough to learn the basics.
I've just read this forum post and I am having exactly the same problem tring to populate a drop downlist! Would you be able to help at all please? I have a list of over 100 items in excel / notedpad (see below for examples) where users completing a form will only select 1 of these items. I cannot seem to find an easy way to do this despite several attempts at trying. I thought I could copy and paste the list into the xml source (enclosed in text tags but this does not seem to work and comes up with an error message. I'm new to livecycle as well so this does not help eiether!
I'm using Livecycle designer ES 8.2 that comes with Acrobat Pro 9. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have designed a pdf form basically a CV format to be filled by the users while applying for job, in that form i have used many form controls namely checkbox, listbox, radio-buttons, drop-downs and so on.. My problem is that whenever i want to add a new location or update drop-down i have to do it at multiple places. For example i have a drop down for Nationality or Country that is repeated through out the form (independent of each other), is there a way to update the dropdown list values in one place and not have to edit each field specifically?
In other words is it possible to have the form pull "lookup" data from one source? meaning if i update the nationality drop-down at one place then it should reflect the changes at all the other places where am using the nationality drop-down.
Can anyone help me out in this please.....
