I want to create a filliable form where the form fields are bound to a data source. The value of the datasource will populate the fields. Once the form is created the layout does not change but the data souce can have one to N line items.
The business users populates a file, xml or csv with line items and the form will contain the data. The business users distributes the form to the respondents.
Each line item will have a check box next to it that the respondent will check and submit the form and return. The form needs to have a calculation that sums the values of the line items that are checked by the respondent.
FormsCentral doesn't support this type of use case.
is there a forum where I can post this for a more general use case, like ES3 livecycle and acrobat.com?
Livecycle designer may be the best place. Acrobat Forms forum might be another.
