event.target.value = this.getField("Dropdown1").value;
Where Dropdown1 is the name of the targeted dropdown.

Thanks for the reply. The script you provided doesn't exactly do what I'm trying to accomplish. In your example both drop downs do not have export values. In your example, it places the name of Dropdown1 into the text field. If I copy and paste the line of script into custom calc of Text4 then Dropdown1 name goes into Text4. Not what I want to do.
What I have is, at least, four drop downs which contain the same names but different export values (i.e., address in Drop1, SSN in Drop2, WorkClass in Drop3 and PayRate in Drop4). What I'm trying to do is to trigger each drop down to place their export values into text fields when I select a name in Dropdown1. The script I provide will work, but only for one drop down and one text field.
Very basically, I'm trying to make filling out my form automatic and time saving. I'm not trying to place the same info (values) in all the fields. I want to place each drop down info in the corresponding text field. It should be easy, shouldn't it?
If you'd like shoot me your email and I'll send you an example of what I am trying to do. Perhaps it would give you a better idea than my written explanation.
Please, post a link to your example file here on the forum since I'm not the only one that can help you.
Thanks for providing the link. It really doesn't do what I want to do. Very basically, all I'm trying to do is when I select a name from the first drop down then the other three drop downs would trigger (as if you clicked and selected the same name manually). All four drop downs have the same names but export different values into text fields.
I'm trying to make filling out the form more automatic and faster. I cannot believe how many people cannot understand what I'm trying to do. After 42 emails, one expert couldn't get it and didn't understand what I am trying to do. Instead of manually selecting names from the drop down, making the selection from the first drop down and all the drop downs would be selected and trigger their export values into their text fields. Easy.
If you have the solution or another link please provide? I am my wits end trying to figure this out.
