    Code Problems

    SarahLe

       

      I am trying to create a custom calculation script that takes the results of two fields as strings and prints the two strings together with additional text.

       

      I have Adobe XI Pro. This is what I have that does not work.

         

      Function () {


      Event.value = this.getField(“PatientName”).valueAsString + " was seen on " + this.getField(“DateOfEvaluation”).valueAsString;

       

      }

       

       

       

      The form contains both fields “PatientName” and “DateOfEvaluation.” It doesn’t matter if either or both fields have value. The error is that a character is illegal.

       

      If I reduce it to Event.value = " was seen on ", the script is accepted but doesn’t show up in the form box upon reopening the document.


      I have tried several iterations more complex than the first simple function above. The more complex iterations involve defining variables, and have come back with the error saying that a semicolon is missing from the beginning of the second or third line (despite that every line ends with a semi colon.)


      Any help is appreciated.
