I am creating a financing form. Can the user add/remove raws in the table when needed? For example, I want to have a section called Co-financing with each row a separate financing. Within that row are three fields to fill out (1. Name, 2. Ammount , 3. Type (drop down box). I would like to have the user fill out one row, then if needed, request to have another fillable row added if they have more financiers. If they don't, then they move on to the next section to fill out. Can I do this is Adobe Acrobat Pro DC?
Thanks!

It can be done to some extent, yes. The easiest way is to create the fields in advance and then show them when needed.

This means that when they are hidden there will be empty space on the page, though. It's not possible to "re-flow" the static contents of the page to account for the extra rows.

Hi! I hope someone can help me.I foudn this so I minus as well give it a shot. 

I am creating a form. 

I have created it in Word. saved it as a pdf.  and working within Adobe Acrobat Pro 2017. 

 

What I am looking to do is

1. add a button that allows me to add a row. Eg. if there are columns a b c d, there would be an add button that will bring those up above the add button. 

2. Also i would liek to add a button to remove the row in case i entered in data I don't need. 

 

 

I already know how to add a button for opening, saving, go to etc. but oddly enough nothing for adding  row.  I know livecycle is no longer. 

If my Adobe Acrobat Pro 2017 isn't the right program which is the next one? Sounds like Adobe Acrobat DC?

o i hope someone can help me.
