Hi Paul - thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!! That's exactly what I was trying to accomplish. You've saved me from wasting time and my sanity! (well, maybe not my sanity - that's been gone for a while :-))
Have a great day
....insert sheepish expression here...
Hi Paul (or anyone else)
The form you uploaded works perfectly; however, when I try the same thing on my form, the hidden text box still does not display. I've read through more posts and have ensured everything is the same; I changed my Form properties from Adobe 7 Static to Dynamic, changed my field type to XHTML, and still nothing. The only other thing I've noticed that's different is your form is version 9, whereas mine is 8. If that is causing my problem, how do I go about fixing this? If it's not, do you have any other suggestions? I even copied your code from the Change event directly to my form, changed the names to match your code, and still nothing. I know the code works though because the other options autopopulate the form accordingly, and
Puts the ffff into the AdminAsst field. In your code, there's no ";" after the "visible" but I've tried it both with and without, no such luck.
Any ideas? Once again your time is appreciated...........

Are the fields getting populated if I choose a 1-5 value? In Designer cright click on the Preview tab and ensure that the Dynamic option is on. This display indicates which format your file has been saved as. If it is static do a saveAs and make it dynamic.
If that is not the issue ...then can you send me your form and I will have a look. Send it to LiveCycle8@gmail.com

Yup, that was the problem. So what's the difference between going under File -> Form Properties -> Defaults and setting it there versus going to Save As? I had set the Form Properties as Adobe 7 Dynamic, but that obviously didn't fix the issue.
Again - thank you thank you thank you!!!
When you save the file from Designer a processing instruction is written into the file. This instruction overrides all others. That is why the one in the Form Properties is being ignored.
