I have a field that would require selection from one or another dropdown depending on scenario.
What I would like to do is make one dropdown or the other visible/active depending on a selection made in a different dropdown.
Ie.;
If Select "NO" in dropdown 1 > Then dropdown A is visible/active.

If Select "YES" in dropdown 1 > Then dropdown B is visible/active.

Alternatively it could be the same dropdown but with a different list of selections based on the selection made in dropdown 1

I hope this is doable

Well, that is exactly what I am looking for.  Unfortunately though, the work order PDF I am making is primarily mobile and from my testing it doesn't seem like it works on the mobile reader app

Most scripts don't work on mobile devices, unfortunately. If you're using an iOS device give PDF Expert by Readdle a shot, though. It offers some support for scripts in PDF files. It's limited, but much better than what's available in Adobe's applications.

This methodology will work in PDF Expert on IOS, but it has to be done slightly differently because the event model is different.
