I would like to include an option to add more rows to a table in a pdf document, something similar to ticking a check box created in the "Prepare form" option. Is it possible to add a function like this or would I need to use a different program than Adobe Acrobat?

Thanks for the reply. Too bad that doesn't seem to be an easy fix for my problem, but I'm still grateful for your suggestions.

PDF forms created in Acrobat are not dynamic in this way. What you can do is either:

- Create the rows in advance and then show/hide them as needed (note that when they are hidden there will be a white gap on the page. The rest of the page's content will not automatically "re-flow"), or:

- Create a Template page with extra rows for the table and then spawn new copies of it, as needed.

Makes me miss the days when Adobe would include LiveCycle Designer with Acrobat, even though no one knew what is was!
