I am using the JSO object and get field method to retrieve the values of dropdown lists from a form and place them into a variable which is then placed in a spreadsheet. In the following code the mobjJSO has already been initialized. The value of the array is the name of the dropdown list that is Skill_1. I have confirmed the name and that it is on the PDF form. I have other dropdowns that this appears to work correctly to bring back the value, but for this one I actually get the number of item that was chosen in the listing instead of the text. For instance, if the user chose Data Entry below returns a 2 for the second item in the list instead of "Data Entry". Does anybody know what I am doing wrong? I just can't seem to get this to work.
strValue = mobjJSO.getField(mobjLookupArray(i, 0)).Value
Did you check the export values in the list? This is what is returned as the value of the list field.
Thanks! That was it.
