Hi there,

I am trying to use field data to populate text in the summary line using my submit button. Can anyone help me figure this one out? I have tried searching the forums as this seems like a typical thing, but I haven't had much luck...

Sorry I misunderstood your questions. You can't do this from the built-in submit action. It can only be done from a script. Here's the article you need.https://acrobatusers.com/tutorials/dynamically-setting-submit-e-mail-address

You need to use a calculation script in the summary field. Calculations can be used to add text together as well as numbers.

Here are a couple of resources.

Hi Thom - Thank you for the articles, but I'm still not getting the desired result. I am using the Submit Form action on the button properties and trying to get the fields First NameRow1 and Last NameRow1 into the summary line of the email. Is there another place I should be putting this script? I think I have read that this won't work in the URL section, but I'm not sure where else it would go. I am still very much a beginner...
