You need to explain what happens when a user selects D or E. Is this done with a radio button group, check boxes, a list box, combo box, or text field? Is a script triggered when the selection is manually made? Without knowing more details of how the form is set up, it's impossible to make suggestions.
THANK YOU for the response. It is a RADIO button and it fills in a Text Box
with either D or E dependent upon the selection. My problem is that when
one user fills in the data and transmit the data (NOT FORM) in XFDF format,
upon opening the file the D or E in the Text Box does not show BUT the
proper radio button shows as if it has been selected. IF PROPERLY SELECTED
the background border changes from a white background to a light green (D)
or light red (E) color and a box pops up as a title stating DECK QUESTION
AUTHOR or ENGINE QUESTION AUTHOR.
I need to find a way that when the file is open the D radio button which is
selected is RESELECTED so that all colors and text, etc. are properly set.

Sorry, I missed the fact that you're using a radio button group.
The alternative is to make the field that displays D or E (or a different hidden field) a calculated field and place the code that makes the relevant changes in a custom calculate script for the field. The script can be set up to execute the code only when it is triggered by the radio button value change. In this case, the code that makes the changes will get triggered whenever the radio button value changes, whether it's due to a user making a manual selection, by importing form data, or programmatically.
I realize this may be a bit confusing for a beginner, so post again if you'd like more help and include the code you're currently using.
I am willing to send you the form but do NOT want to post it on the forum. if you want to communicate with me directly then email me a firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
