Listboxes don't show up as all other objects do when I use "More form options" and "Merge data files into spreadsheet." Is this a known issue? Is there a solution? I'm using LeveCycle ES4.

I want the form to include a data drop down list bound to an SQL Server table, but I also want to show/hide objects based on the user's actions, clicking radio buttons, for example. Can I have a form that does both? I'm habing trouble finding helpful information, both in this forum and in wider searches.

Thank you for this information, which may be true in theory, but my forms show that only the static form can show external data, and the static form can't change presence at runtime, although other actions (like reset all fields) will work. On the other hand, in a dynamic form, I can change presence, but data will not appear in the dynamic dropdown, which is grabbing names from SQL Server. Can you try an experiment yourself? Try a data connection and changing presence in the same form, and let m...

I've created a form with a dynamically populated dropdown of names. To get it populated, one step was to save it as a static PDF form. Then it worked perfectly. However, I soon found that my scripts to show hide elements no longer worked. Certain Action Builder actions still worked, but not show/hide. So I created a simple test form, and show/hide worked normally. I've tried both formcalc and javascript. So is it true that a form can be dynamic and all actions work or the form can be static and ...

After more testing, I've found that the Date/Time field cannot be set to Data Format Date and Time or it won't work. Current Date is the same. I've gotten errors in the Report palette when there is a mismatch. So the Help instructions aren't accurate. These two fields are actually limited to dates, if you want to export the data to a spreadsheet, at least. I don't know why each object has so many possible settings in the Object palette when you can't use certain combinations.Now I'm looking for ...

I've tried it both ways, and in neither case does the date make it into a spreadsheet, although it does make it into an XML file. What accounts for this behavior, do you suppose?

I notice that if I select as Value Runtime Property, then the Binding tab disappears. And there's a FormCalc in the script editor. with Num2Date and Num2Time functions. However, when I Manage Data, there are no fields and no values either from Export as XML or in a spreadsheet. Also, I notice that when I open my form from two years ago, Acrobat has the line across the top that says, "Please fill out the following form" and has the Highlight Existing Fields button, which does highlight the Date/T...

I should also add that right now I'm using my own machine. Ok. Now I have some more helpful information. I created this problem form at work. The Date/Time field and Current Date field from that form are the ones with more limited palettes. Now, at home, when I drag a Date/Time field or Current Date field onto the same form, I get the full object palette that I see on that form from two years ago. So, it seems that ES 2 at work is different from the ES 2 that I have at home. I guess I should com...

Hi, Niall! Thank you for this suggestion. In ES2, in the Object palette, there are tabs for Fieldand Value. In the Value tab, I selected Runtime Property: Current Date/Time. On the Field tab>Patterns, I selected a Type, but nowhere do I see a Binding palette or Name/Normal. Have you tried one of these objects to see what happens? It's strange to me that the PDF shows the Date and Time, but when I send the data to a spreadsheet, only the Date Time disappears. Even the name of the object is missin...
