Linking Text Box Fields

I have a 3 page document in Acrobat, each page having a text field on. How do I link the 3 text fields one each page so that the text flows between them. Once field 1 is full the text flows into field No. 2 and so on. I have zero experience in Javascript but after searching about this, this is possibly how I can do it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It was never possible, in any Acrobat version. You can use a script to achieve something similar to it, but it will always have issues. For example, you will lost one keystroke in the moment a field is filled in, before it goes to the next one.
