    Linking/Grouping Text Fields with a Check Box Field

    ConlinJG

      Disclaimer: I know nothing about coding/scripting in Acrobat (or in any language, for that matter).

       

      I have 4 sets of text fields, call them A, B, C, and D. All of the fields in set A will have a value entered. There are 10 fields in set A while sets B, C, and D may have as many as 104. Sets B, C, and D will always have a one-to-one-to-one correspondence with each other (B1 is associated with C1 and D1 only and so on). My dilemma/desire is two fold:

       

      First:

      I want to be able to group 3 to 4 of the fields in set C if I tick a check box/radio button/whatever field type works. When the fields are grouped, I want their values to be the same within the grouping. These fields should also be ungrouped when the marker field is unchecked/deactivated. No field will ever be in any more than one group.

       

      Second:

      I want values for set B to equal a value of set A if there is a value entered in that B's corresponding C field.

       

      Please don't hesitate to point out where I can make any of this clearer.

       

       

      Thank you in advance,

      Joseph

       

      P.S.

      If one or both of these is not doable in Acrobat, would you please kindly point me to a program that can do this?
