I'm trying to script a PDF in Adobe Acrobat Standard DC to have 3 drop down box to only select the proper selection depending on the previous selection in the dropdown boxes, like my first box has service plans ( No service. Voice and Text Service. Voice, Text and Data Service. Data Service.) my second drop box ( Android, IOS, BlackBerry, Mobile Phone(Voice & text only), Mobile cellular modem, Fixed cellular modem, Tablet, Pager, Push-to-talk) and my 3 dropdown box, has the selection of phones depending on what they would select from the previous dropdown boxes.

Here is another article that explains List programming (including multiple dependent drop downs).

That would be quite hard to do in general, and especially in the Standard version, since you don't have direct access in it to the doc-level scripts, which means you can't define the data model at a shared location for all the scripts required to do it.

However, a script can still access it, so if you want you can use this (paid-for) tool I've developed that will allow you to set it up easily and quickly, based on a simple spreadsheet with all the data in it: Custom-made Adobe Scripts: Acrobat -- Create Cascading Dropdowns
