I keep getting this syntax error, "Syntax error: "Missing ; before statement 3 and 4."  Basically, I doesn't like, String Last = this.getField("Last Name");

Here is the code I have:

this.documentFileName.replace(/.pdf/,"");

String First = this.getField("First Name");

String Last = this.getField("Last Name");

String Middle = this.getField("Middle Initial");

String State = this.getField("State");

String Patient = Last + ", " + First + " " + Middle;

The goal is the code to compare the file name to the patient's name in the PDf form fields.  I haven't written the rest yet until I can get this syntax error sorted out.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you, I changed the "String" to "var" and now it works perfectly.  Thank you!

"String" is found in Java, where it is needed. It's a very natural thing to do to write JavaScript as Java Script or assume Java is short for JavaScript. Unfortunately, if you feed this into Google, you're going to get examples of how to write Java, which is not at all useful to you...
