Hi There!

I have a general understanding of Acrobat, but have not used the form tools very much.

In a nutshell, I am creating an order form where the customer chooses their item from a drop down and in the next field they enter the quantity. I am wanting to have a totaling feature added to the bottom of the form to calculate the total quantity ordered for each item in the drop down list.

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, this is not only possible, but part of how PDF forms are supposed to work. Here is an article and sample form that shows how it's done:

And here is a site where you can download a sample order form.
