I'm new here and fairly new to creating PDF forms. Here is what I am trying to accomplish on my PDF form. I created a Drop Down Menu labeled "procedure" and in the Properties-Options Item section I entered surgery names, and in the Export Value field their corresponding procedure code. My hopes are when selecting their name from the drop down menu it will insert their procedure code in a text field labeled "CPT", that's the function I am trying to figure out. I don't need to have the ability to custom enter text, the export will always be based off the single selection from the drop down menu. Thank you in advance!

It's easily done. As the custom calculation script of the text field enter this:
event.value = this.getField("procedure").valueAsString;
