Dynamically populating a dropdown list in a pdf form from a datasource

Not applicable
Is there a way to populate a dropdown list in a pdf form from a datasource, specifically from an Access database table or query, using LiveCycle Designer. I am easily able to do this using cfselect in Coldfusion, however, cannot seem to figure it out for pdf forms. I am aware of the Show Dynamic Properties option enabled in LiveCycle Designer, and then binding to a datasource. However, this seems limited as I am only able to select single columns from Access (currently using an Access database) tables, and a unable to select from queries like I do using cfselect in Coldfusion forms. Is this something that must be done with Java scripting? If so, is there any other way? I know nothing about scripting. Thanks

Derrick,



There is a sample posted at



http://www.adobe.com/devnet/livecycle/articles/lc_designer_db_lookup_tip.pdf



It was created for Designer 7.0 but it should function the same in later versions of Designer.
