    Using certain characters from one text field in another text field?

      Hi,

       

      I am trying to complete a University project in which I have to create a fully functional PDF form. I would like to know if it is possible to create two text fields in an acrobat document and have certain characters from the first textfield inserted into the second.

       

      For example:

       

      If 'B12345678-COM123' was inserted in the first text field, I would only want the first 9 characters (B12345678) of this text automatically inserted into the second textfield and have it read only. Therefore the user does not have to repeat themselves and enter the same data/codes twice.

       

      A solution to this problem/query would be much appreciated as I am a complete amateur when it comes to acrobat.

       

      Detailed explanations please
