Heya everyone, I have a drop down which has info like this: Name, Address, Phone, City, State, Email, Customer's Name, Address, and so on. I think there's 10 entries all together. Everything is working fine but all the info populates into just one text field. The info is separated by commas like I typed here. The info is all one line of text when I created the drop down. So, what I'd like to do now is somehow to split the info into it's own field. The name would populate into the Name field, the address would populate the Address field and so on. But, you guessed it, I don't know if that can be done or how to do it. Can someone shed some light on how to accomplish this. Thanks.
You can use the split method.
Thanks for the reply. I've checked the link and it's comes close to what I'm trying to do. I've downloaded a demo from Custom-made Adobe Scripts website. It's pretty cool and appears to be very helpful time saving tool. I can choose a text file to import into a pdf drop down. Having names and addresses, etc. What I'd like to do, is from that imported list of names and addresses is to populate the corresponding text fields. The list is commas separated. The lines of imported text look like this - John Doe, 2222 Some Street, Los Angeles CA 90210, (310)555-1212, FAX (310)222-2222, Email firstname.lastname@example.org. I would like to split this line of text into individual fields to then populate the fields. Well, that's probably as clear as mud. But, if you understand what I'm trying to do please chime in. I'm trying to learn whatever I can. I'll check back later. Thanks, folks.
