I receive the above message opening this form in Acrobat. I do have a range of visible/hidden fields that contain global fields but this works on other forms like this. Can someone explain what this means or how it occurs, and a possible fix. Thanks.

Hi, I have a form with grey ghost text in several fields. The form includes an Email Submit Button and code to 'protect' the fields on preSubmit. Is there a way to clear the ghost text from any fields that have not had any text entered before the form is submitted? Thanks.

Subform order based on date

Not sure if this is possible - nothing occurs to me. I have a form with an appointment list for patients - each subform will have a date field to be entered for that appointment. This list is then printed out and the clinician use them as a guide to the appointments required. What they would like is to have the list run in order based on the date. I was thinking that maybe the appointments could appear on a separate page in an order based on the date entered. Is this possible, or is there some w...

A person completes the form and saves a copy (this saved copy has certain fields still active for another user to complete). The form includes instructional information - I've used this.presence = "hidden" in preSave so this information disappears in the saved version.

My form has a subform that becomes visible when 'yes' is ticked in a radio button group (there are several radio button groups and subforms). The subform appears again on a summary page - I included instances of the hidden subform in two places. I have made each field in the subform 'global' so all data appears the same in both instances of the subform. This worked fine on the first few of these forms. On the latest I received the above message and the form won't open. Can anyone tell me what th...

I have finished a form that includes a large number of 'preSave' scripts. Once the form is 'signed' instructional information becomes hidden, and only completed fields remain. My problem is I need to save the form to enable rights for users with Adobe Reader. When I 'save as' all the information disappears. Is there any way around this? Pretty desperate for any help - thanks!!

Have tried finding an answer in the forum and can't seem to sort this particular issue out. I have a form that has a front section (with 3 master pages - 1 for the front page only, and 2 others for even/odd pages) - when checkboxes are selected new subforms become visible and these subforms are repeated on a new page (different summary page with different header/footer) at the end of the document. This works and the summary page appears with subforms. The problem is if the front section goes ove...

I am creating a form that includes if/else radio boxes that have a form visible or remain hidden.

I only want this page to appear if there are visible subforms in the front part of the form. And, if possible, I want only these 'summary' pages to print when the print button is clicked on. I don't have much experience coding - is this possible? Than...

Hi,Rather than having a separate Signature Field and Submit button, I'd like to have the form submit by email when the electronic signature is completed and OK'd (in the one step). Is this possible? I've tried added scripting to the 'postSign' section but can't get anything to work.Thanks for any help.

I have a Floating Field that populates based on a date selected in an earlier Date Field. While the earlier Date Field uses the Australian DD/MM/YYYY pattern, the Floating Field displays the American MM/DD/YYYY pattern. Is there any way I can control how the date displays in the Floating Field?Thanks.

Can anyone help with this problem?? I desperately need this to work. I have created a form with Livecycle ES4 and have Reader Extended it in Acrobat Pro. This form is hosted on an intranet. Nothing happens when staff click on the signature field. I'm not sure if there are certain restrictions on the field that need to change. I have searched and searched and can't find an answer. Any help would be very appreciated!!!

If yes to any in the first section it is 'predictable' and if yes to any in the second section it is 'preventable'.Outcomes are 'Predictable & preventable', 'Predictable & not preventable', 'Not predic...

No problem Bruce - it's that time of year. No rush. I can see the problem in the code, but that wasn't affecting any of the other items, just the bottom two products in the 'enfit' section - I have no idea why these two are not returning their codes.If you just take a look in your own time it would be appreciated. Merry Christmas.

Hi Bruce,There isn't any special characters (just numerals) and I can't see any duplicates. I've uploaded the form (link below). Just to help, one of the issues is in the 'Oral, EnFit Syringe' section (EnFit ADAPTOR, BOTTLE: MEDICATION, BOT DIA 25.5 - 27MM).

Hi, I have a form with a drop down list containing products - when a product is selected a text field in the same table shows the product code. This works mostly - the only problem I've noticed is when particular products are chosen the code field remains blank. I have no idea why this is happening - would anybody have an idea or solution. Thanks.

Hi radzmar, I want to apply a similar function to a message box. When the user clicks on 'submit' to attach the form to an email I want to ask them if they're sure the form is complete. This is OK if they choose yes, the form attaches to the email, but it also attaches to an email if 'no' is chosen. What do I need to include to cancel the email and return to the form if they choose no. Thanks.

Hi - I have used code referencing the 'specified values' of the items in a drop down list to hide/show a range of subforms. I want to be able to use the 'text' of the same items to populate a text field. This text field will become the 'subject' line of the email that this form is attached to when submitted. Is this possible, or will I have to change the drop down list to 'global binding' and change the code for the subform functionality? Thanks for any help.
