# Select another checkbox based on currently selected checkbox minus constant

I have two forms in a single PDF that have many checkboxes.  I'm trying out how to have a checkbox on Form A minus a constant be selected when the user selects a given checkbox on Form B.  Because I'm working with a company form that can't be modified, I'm trying a workaround that will get me what I'm looking for.

The checkbox names on the two forms are sequential and chronological

For example

Form B has following text fields and checkboxes

fb.tf1     fb.cb1

fb.tf2     fb.cb2

fb.tf3     fb.cb3

fb.tf4     fb.cb4

fb.tf5     fb.cb5

fb.tf6     fb.cb6

fb.tf7     fb.cb7

...

fb.tf35   fb.cb35

Form A has the following checkboxes

fa.cb1

fa.cb2

fa.cb3

fa.cb4

fa.cb5

fa.cb6

fa.cb7

fa.cb8

fa.cb9

...

fa.cb31

Step 1

From just the first 7 text fields listed on Form B determine which text field is the first one with a value in it and create constant from that text field where

If fb.tf1 selected then constant = 0,

If fb.tf2 selected then constant = 1,

.....

If fb.tf7 selected then constant = 6,

Step 2

For each checkbox on Form B selected, select Form A checkbox - constant

E.g.,

If first occupied text field on Form B = fb.cb3

then constant = 2

If fb.cb5 selected then select fa.cb3 (fb.cb5 - 2 = 3)

If fb.cb9 selected then select fa.cb7 (fb.cb9 - 2 = 7)

If fb.cb20 selected then select fa.cb18 (fb.cb20 - 2 = 18)

If first occupied text field on Form B = fb.cb6

then constant = 5

If fb.cb9 selected then select fa.cb4 (fb.cb9 - 5 = 4)

If fb.cb20 selected then select fa.cb15 (fb.cb20 - 5 = 15)

If fb.cb27 selected then select fa.cb22 (fb.cb27 - 5 = 22)
