    Linking Drop Down Boxes / Combo Boxes

    kenneth83

      I wonder if I could ask someone to please help with a problem I am having with linking lists and combo fields? I looked at the tutoral for this and its exactly what I want to do (

      http://www.acrobatusers.com/tutorials/2 … _livecycle) but still cannot seem to get this to work.

       

      I have a list of items in a drop down (see below) and when you select one of these (such as Bachelor of Arts (BA)) I want a range of options in another drop-down (Mode of Study, eg. full-time) to become available to choose and once one of these is chosen I then want a defined variable to appear in a text box. The only exception to this is where variable mode of study is selected, as I would like it to be possible to have the option to make a custom entry into the text box. I'd also like to add a line if there is more than one qualification just like in your example where an order line can be added.

       

      Any help, would be greatly appreciated!

       

      Thanks,

       

      Ken
