I have 2 forms form 1 and Form 2; how can i access form 2 fields from form 1? I read the Acrobat Javascript reference and I saw this code snippet:var otherDoc = app.openDoc("myDoc.pdf", this);otherDoc.getField("name").value="Enter your name here: "otherDoc.getField("name").setFocus();this.closeDoc();I reconstruct it to match my form values. It opens the other form but it doesnt do anything else.Is there a way to do this?

Need help,Here is an issue I need help with ...form 1 inserts data into a database and then form 2 retrieves some of this data from the database when it is open. After form 1 is filled out a button is clicked to open form 2. Now here is the issue: Since form 2 retrieves data from the database which was entered from form1 there obviously need to be some link between the 2 forms. Therefore a transaction number is saved to the database to link the forms. Now I need this number to be available when ...

This is how i will solve it..on each field: whether a text field, combo box etc you can view their events by clicking them and selecting from the drop down list; in this drop down list u will see a number of events: click, enter, exit, prePrint, preSave etc and in that list u will find form:ready. Select it and paste the code there make sure Javascript is selected as the Language.

I also did some reading on my own else where and this is what I foundhttp://livedocs.adobe.com/livecycle/8.2/acrobat_designer/wwhelp/wwhimpl/common/html/wwhelp.htm?context=Adobe_LiveCycle_Designer_Help&file=001406.htmlwhich states that it doesn't applies to the preSave event.Is this true? I tested the cancel action on the prePrint event and it did cancel it but when tried on the presave it failed.Here is the code I used:xfa.event.cancelAction = 1;Thanks for ur assistance.

hey I just downloaded the Adobe Acrobat 9 trial version for testing to see if your solution worked...Using Livecycle es 8.2 which is bundled with the product I do see the cancelAction under xfa.event; however could you send me an example of how you use this method to cancel saving on the pre save button? code examples will help?

Thanks for the reply...I figured it has something to do with the prePrint/preSave events, but on what field or moreover where will I put my code to do this, meaning you are only allowed to enter codefor the prePrint/preSave events ontextfields, checkboxes etc. could i just put it on any textfield and it is guaranteed that the event will be called wen the print or save button that adobe provides is clicked. To continue whenever I am entering this xfa.event.cancelAction, u know when you enter xfa....
