Hi

I spent a whole night trying to figure out how to repeat some text fields on top of a form and before a table to repeat on the next page, if the table below them expands over the next page. I was pulling my hair out over this matter...

A short version of this form can be download for review and possible solution here http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=08982114555283937074

So, there are three text fields on top of the form, then a table below it. In case the table expands over the next page, I would like the three text fields to repeat on top of the page 2 and so forth.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi.

Yes, it`s possible.

Select the last cell and on Exit event (Client Java Scrip) add the scrip:

Table1._Row1.addInstance(true);

It's will work on the file I sent previously.

But you need to add logic and specify condition for yours needs.

After looking back and experimenting with the table I realize that what I am after is this:

1. A table with one header row and one body row with 3 columns  (each cell expands as needed)

2.upon entering tab on the last cell, a new row is created.

is that possible?

Hi

I'm not sure if I understand what you said.

When you say: the excess text in the table is not flowing onto the next page...

Ex: I create 10 rows.

If the text of row 10 is large,  this row  jumps to the next page.

Do you want row 10 to remain on the first page and continue the text on the 2 page?

Hi Anderson

I think I have figured out Livecycle Forms. In my case, if I am not wrong, all I have to do is create individual flowing content areas...

I was referring to the file you sent me... the excess text in the table is not flowing onto the next page.

Hi

Thank you. That's very much what I am looking for... However, the text is not flowing onto the next page.

The excess text remains concentrated on the first page while the second page that is created remains empty...

Hi.

You're welcome.


I made a mistake.
I figured out the question of the master page.

Another point.
I use Adobe Acrobat Pro. I do not know if you know, but for completing the form in the free version, you need to
enable form fill-in.
I sent the form enabled.


I deleted the button to add rows.
Now click the Item column to add rows.

If you want to edit the table (in the PDF), as in the first version, we can use a little trick, hide the button for the edition.

I hope this help you.

Hi

Thank you for answering... Can I have te table expanding and flowing over the next pages without the aid of buttons?

Also, the three text fields on top of the page are for users to fill in. As they are on the Master Page, they can't be edited.

So, the user fills in those text fields and if the table flows over to the next page, those text fields are then replicated on top of the page followed by the table.
