It requires using a custom-made script. I've developed a tool that allows you to easily set it up in your file without having to actually write the code used to do it. All you need is a file that contains all of the data and the script does the rest for you. You can purchase it from here: Custom-made Adobe Scripts: Acrobat -- Populate Fields From Dropdown
Awesome. Thank you for replying to this thread. I'm not able to view your blogspot page correctly due to my works security settings, so I do have a couple of questions.
How is the data for the drop-down field and all of the effected fields saved to the PDF? I would assume that the created PDF document would not have any issues being emailed out through different email providers? And lastly, do you only use PayPal if my boss was to want to purchase your script or do you accept other forms of payment? Just let me know if you don't want to answer any of these over the open forums and I will send you a PM.
I answered by PM...
I ran everything by my boss today but he was not interested in purchasing your scripts. So I did some more research via Google and I came across some instructions that I believe will work for what we want to do elsewhere on the web. Thanks again for offering your help, I appreciate it.
