The form doesn't work in Adoabe Acrobat and Adobe Reader.
To be fair, this type of form is would be better suited for creation in LiveCycle Designer (should be installed if you have Acrobat 8.x Pro) as an XFA form.
thanks for looking at my form but.. what do you mean "the form doesn't work"... it won't open? or you can open it but cant enter data..
Yes, I see what you are showing in that PNG. Somme Partielle remains 0 even in Acrobat Pro 8.1.2.
After further investigations it seems like when you save the working document in Pro and close it, the next time you open it, the field calculation order is messed up and limited to only 15 items.
The calculation for "somme partielle", while having a calculation attached to it, doesn't show in the field calculation order window. And so does the 4 other calculated fields for the taxes.
So, is this limit to 15 calculation fields is normal? Can I change it?
So now I guess my topic's title dont make sense anymore.. lol
No, that's not normal - you shouldn't be limited to 15.
Have you tried making this form in Adobe LiveCycle Designer?
Another approach would be to use the "Custom calculation script" for the math and not the short cut options of pick calculation or the simplified field notation. This would also expand the use of the form to users with versions before 7.
I just went through your form and changed the calculations from the short cut notation fields to the "Custom calculation script" (the script generated by the short cut fields will appear) and noticed the lines did not end with a return. Adding a return to the script in the custom field cleared up the problem.
I have seen a similar problem with JavsScript code being inserted programatically into form fields or other locations within a PDF form.
You might want to contact Acrobat about this problem.
Thanks for you time Geo,
And when you say "Adding a return to the script in the custom field cleared the problem".. does that mean all the fields worked fine, down to the "montant total" field?
What about when you closed it and reopened it? No more limitation to 15 calculations?
I might contact Adobe.
