Made a form in which colleagues can add revisions(+1 row) and amendments (1a,b,c). Once filled in, and opened again the amendments disappear. Anyone who can help?

Hi everyone,

See picture below. Part of a large form I made for work. Got a little problem though. Adding a new row with the button 'add a new revision' is working perfect (also when saved and reopened). But when I add amendments with the + button on the right (a,b,c), these disappear when I save and reopen the file. Anyone who can help?

Thanks!

Hi,

Do the amendment fields have any binding defined, if not the values will be lot.

Hi Bruce,

Yes those field have the binding 'use name'. Is this wrong?

Hi,

'use name' should be fine as long as everything else is.

Can you post a link to your form so we can have a look, you can't upload the form in this forum but if you use Acrobat.com,  Google Docs, or similar and post a link here we can try and see what is happening.

Hi,

did you set the form properties to preserve script changes?

See this tutorial to learn how to do this.

Hey!

Yes the form properties are set to preserve script changes...

Here's the link to this part of the document:

I had no problem adding and saving using both the and the top button. Are you saving with Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader?

Ok, I've checked your form and there are some problem in your design.

You should use better namings for your objects!

It makes no sense to name to tables with repeatable instances the same.

This can cause problems with repeated objects and also requires the usage of the slow resolveNode() method.

I've changed a few object names and so I where able to shorten many of your current scripts.

I am saving with Adobe Reader, but my colleagues have pro and when they save the document they have the same problem.

Thank for the tips. But in your modified form certain things don't work: when I add revisions (1,2,3) and then want to add amendments (a,b,c) they do not appear. Also it shows 01'  instead of 01a.
