Is there a way to export the choices from a picklist within an Adobe form? 

We inherited a from form a customer and need to make bunch of changes to the wording of the product list. We would like to export to a TXT or Excel file to make the change before we update the live form. 

Thank you for your time.

The easiest way is to export it to the JS Console, and then copy it from there.

You can use this script to achieve that:

 

var f = this.getField("ENTER FIELD NAME HERE");
for (var i=0; i<f.numItems; i++) {
	console.println(f.getItemAt(i, false));
}

 

If the items also have export values you can get those as well, by duplicating the console.println line and changing false to true in it.
