i want to create a if command so that if field D1 has anything typed into it then another field Dropdown1 becomes required but dont know how to write it out for adobe pdf form. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You say that the dropdown should become required, but required for what? It could be required in order to submit, save, print, move on to the next section, etc. Also, since a dropdown (normally) always has a value (e.g., is not blank), submitting will never be blocked, if None is selected for example, unless you code a custom routine that controls things.
yeah the dropdown needs to be selected before they can submit the form.
what if i add a blank field to the drop down cause sometime when they take a pc the may not take the power cord or mouse so none would be the answer. or can i even do that what would be my best solution.
i want it to work so that if they take a device they put the tag# in the D1 field once that field has that info i then want drop down to then be required to have an answer and also date out and date in be required for that device before the form can be submitted. if there is an easier way to achieve this i can change how it needs to be and my options in the dropdown is power cord, mouse, both or none.
