Hi,

There are a few differences in the allowable names for an XFA field and for a JavaScript object and having a full stop in a name is one of them.  In JavaScript you would have to reference the field as a property of it's parent so if the field app.016Description0 has a parent Page1 then you could use Page1["app.016Description0"].

But I would rename your XFA fields.

Regards

Bruce

From your code I'm assuming you have an LCD form, so I'm moving this thread to the relevant forum.
