I would like to find a way to post mutiple data in fields. I would like the fields to be "Name", "Date of Birth" and "Student#".  I would also like a button to press to save this data on the PDF form.  Then I would like the Name to appear in the "Name" dropdown box and when I select the name from the dropdown menu, two other fields for "Date of Birth" and another field "Student#" would auto populate based upon the data that was orginally inputted. I have been playing around and I cannot get it to work.

All of it requires a quite complex script.

The first part, populating fields based on the selection in a drop-down, is the easier part. You can do it using this (paid-for) tool I've developed: http://try67.blogspot.com/2015/07/acrobat-populate-fields-from-dropdown.html

Or read these tutorials:

https://acrobatusers.com/tutorials/change_another_field

 

The second part, saving the data entered by the user to the data model (or file) so it can be used later on is much more complicated to implement. If you wish to have that feature added to it feel free to contact me privately via [try6767 at gmail.com] to discuss it further.
