I am trying to create a fillable document with multiple tiers with check boxes, and if any of the check boxes in that tier is selected, I would like the narrative field below that tier to become required. 

For example: 

Tier 1:

  • Selection 1
  • Selection 2
  • Selection 3
  • Selection 4
  • Selection 5
  • Tier 1 Narrative

 

Tier 2:

  • Selection 6
  • Selection 7
  • Selection 8
  • Selection 9
  • Selection 10
  • Tier 2 Narrative

 

What I'm looking for is if any of Sections 1-5 are selected, Tier 1 Narrative becomes required, and if any of Selections 6-10 are selected, tier 2 narrative becomes required, and so on and so forth.

Let's say checkboxes are named "Selection 1" to 5, use this as custom calculation script of Tier 1 text field:

var req = false;
for(var i=1; i<=5; i++){
var f = this.getField("Selection "+i).valueAsString;
if(f !== "Off")
req = true;}
event.target.required = req;

For other tiers, adjust loop like this for tier 2: for(var i=6; i<=10; i++){
