User entered info used in headers on pages AFTER FIRST


Level 2

Using the Adobe dunning notice example, I learned how to make a second master page and have that apply to all pages after the first. On the first page I have fields for first/middle/last name, and in the header in the second master page I have first/last/middle name fields, and I want this new header to appear on all subsequent pages and be populated with the info from the first page.

I tried with both action builder (when the field is exited, I set the value of the field in the header to the original field's value) and formcalc (this.rawValue = fieldname.rawValue in the calculate event), but both times it only copied the data into the SECOND page, and not the 3rd.

My hierarchy is currently


-master page

--page1 (first page style, no header)

--restofpages (header+modified content area)

-subform1 (contains fields for name/address and other info)

-subform2 (forced to 'top of next content area, has placeholder field)

-subform3 (forced to 'top of next content area, has placeholder field)

The header appears on page 2 and 3, but when I fill in info on page 1, only page 2 copies the info. Page 3 remains empty. Why?


Edit: Added a picture. You can see the first page and the top of the second - the header is appearing just fine. There's a 3rd page too, just like that. But when I preview it (or save as pdf and edit in acrobat) and fill in data in Last Name, First Name, or Middle, the data only gets copied to the second page.
