Currency list in Dropdown field

Avatar

Level 2
Hi,



here is a little problem I am having with creating a form.



I want to add a dropdownlist with all the currencies available. I have a list of currencies in a textfile, so I could copy&paste it. However, I cannot find any easy way of adding the data to the dropdownlist. Doing it one by one, takes too much time.



Any ideas?



Thanks in advance!

One possibility is to add the field to the form with one or two values.

Then be sure to select the field on the Design View Tab, and switch to the XML Source tab.

You should see some text as follows a bit into the field definition:

<items save="1">

<text>Yes</text>

<text>No</text>

<text> </text>

</items>

(This is from a Yes/No/Blank dropdown I have)

by editing your list of values in NotePad (or another editor other than MS/Word).

You can prefix the items with "<text>", and suffix them with "</text>". Then paste the whole list between the <items save="1"> and </items> tags.



Good Luck!
