I am trying to create job ticket where every time i write a new ticket i can select from a drop down list the customer and it will fill in that information for that customer. I have an excel xml sheet with aLL of the fields needed, i also have all of the fields placed in live cycle to coordinate with them. For some reason I can not link the data and make it work. any answers, thoughts?



thanks

Did you create an ODBC data source to access the data?

In Excel, highlight the area that is supposed to contain the values that you want to share. Right click and choose name a range. This will appear as your table when you connect to it.
