Save data issue

I am new to form building and have been working on an interactive form to submit OR Surgical booking requests from the physician offices to the surgical scheduling office. I have run into a few roadblocks and have not found my answers on the help menu so I am looking for someone who would like to offer their assistance.

. The form is intermittently not saving all data when sent back and forth.

. Can there be a drop down list box that permits multiple selections.

. Can there be a hyperlink connecting a response to one question to additional questions.

If there is someone out there willing to assist this not new nurse with new technical skills it would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Alison

The form is intermittently not saving all data when sent back and forth. <br /><answer> Are you using Reader ...how is the dat being passed back and forth?<br /><br />. Can there be a drop down list box that permits multiple selections.<br /><answer> DropDown list can only have a single selection but choicelists can have multi-selections<br /> <br />. Can there be a hyperlink connecting a response to one question to additional questions<br /><answer> not a hyperlink but you can direct the cursor to go to another field by using the xfa.host.setFocus("target fieldname")

There are a couple of books written on Designer and how to control the forms. You shodul be able to find them on the web.



The xfa.host.settFocus....is a command that could be written inside of a script. If you have never written code before then you will find the concepts difficult to understand.
