    Can a text box with a price translate to a PDF form field?

      I am trying to create an order form for my company that has easily editable prices and item descriptions.  If I create the layout of the form in InDesign and use the "buttons and forms" options, can I have a text box show up on my form as a price? The reason I want to do this is to simplify calculations.  This way I only have to put in the pricing once, and can update it easily. 

       

      My thought process was to create a text box in InDesign, fill it in with a price, make it a text field in buttons and forms, and make it read only.  I was hoping the price I put in InDesign would show through in the PDF, but it didn't. 

       

      Is this possible?
