Hi, Within Acrobat Pro, I am looking to enter several addresses but later on within the document have the option just to select one of the addresses I have originally entered. Obviously, I won't know the addresses until I am completing the form but do not want to have to re-enter the information several times. At present, I can only set up text fields however this will not give the option of selecting mutiple criteria but only duplicating the original entry. Can this process be carried out in Acrobat (similar to Excel Data Validation). Thanks Steve

You can use a drop-down field to enter all the addresses, and (read-only) text fields to copy the selected value from the drop-down and display it later on. This can be done using a very simple script as the custom calculation of the text fields:

 

event.value = this.getField("Address Dropdown").valueAsString;
