Yeah I kinda figured that... Really too bad. Seems lke it should be possible somehow. Anyway, do you all have any suggestions about the best way to combine a static form that is really just text fields and such (that comments and markup tools can be used in) with another page that is sections of narrative that would need to be able to flow?Or better yet, a way to draw lines on to a form without using the comment and markup function? I like your idea about connecting two forms - but I need to kee...

So I have a form that I need to make that would consist of two different pages. The first being lots of form fields and some simple graphics where the user could use the comment markup tools to draw some simple lines. The second page would be all text and filling out narrative. So the second page being dynamic and being able to expand would be important. The first page would not need to expand at all. Is there any way to do this and still have the form be one file, one document? What about embed...

Hey everyone. I'm aware there are lots of sources about how to do this - I'm pretty sure Ive tried them all. I'm sure it is something simple and easy - but I can't seem to be find anything.Is there anyone out there that would mind taking a look at it?The issue is on the last page. A text field called narrative needs to be able to be filled with text and flow to the next page, while keeping the text fields below it intact and at the bottom of the page. Thanks for any help you guys can provide. No...

Sorry about gushing, but this is absolutly perfect! I had no idea this was possible and now I should be able to incorperate it in to what I'm doing. Really its even better then I was hoping for. If you have a chance would you mind checking out a previous post I made:http://forums.adobe.com/message/4335273#4335273I don't really need to know how to do each thing, what I'm looking for is some kind of confirmation from an expert that its possible and if they have any suggestions as to what direction...

Thats actually very helpful! One question though, the raw information I want to put in to the form would consist of several hundred entrees with 7-8 fields each. Would it slow things down to have them built in to the form or would an external database be faster? Also, with that many possible choices, can you point me in the direction of something that might facilitate finding the correct choice faster ie. a menu system or a wizard type thing? Thanks again! This was exactly what I needed

Hello everyone. I have searched high and low for something talking about exactly how to do what I want - but I'm not finding anything thats quite right. Simply put, I want a drop down (with potentially hundreds of choices - I would love to limit the number but there really is no way...) where someone can pick their selection, then, based on that choice, several other text fields get filled in with the corresponding info. I would like to have a database file with the drop down choices, then someh...

OK to narrow this question down a little more, since I posted this, I was able to create a simple access db and create a drop-down list that would have the specified column drop down and I could pick it. Now I just need to figure out how to make a separate text box display the information from the corresponding column of what was picked from the drop down. I think once I can get that done, building the rest of the database and sorting out the fields needed should not be too hard. If anyone could...

Hey there. So this is what I want to do. I want a drop-down list that would have hundreds of possible choices. The user could pick one and several text fields throughout the document would populate accordingly. I'm assuming there would have to be a database of some sort where all the data would live, and a way to tell live cycle that all of certain fields are connected and need to change depending on that first drop down. I hope that makes sense. While that would work, the even better idea would...

Hey everyone. So I am considering a very ambitious and complicated project and I wanted to get some experts opinion on if its possible first of all, and if I am on the right path with the right program to accomplish my goal. First some background:I'm a police department sgt with a pretty significant background in computers - not an expert by any means.... but I do ok. I would like to come up with a way for the officers in my department (about 120 of them filing 9-10k reports a year) to be able t...
