  • using editable/restrictable forms and duplicating fields..

    ok, so, that's a long title, but anyway.,

    I'm working on a form at the moment. Among other things, it has fields for things like:

    "Company name" and "physical address" and "address2" and "address3"

    Later down the form, I refer to the same things.

    so I've got a field for a "primary contact" and on that section, i want a drop-down to choose which "address" they work from.

    I want to configure it so, once they've filled out, it can auto-populate the drop down


    does this make sense.. ?

    Basically, I don't want them to have to re-type information that needs to be in there several times...

    You don't say what technology is housing this form, but if it web you would need something ajaxy to collect and redisplay on the fly.
    A word or pdf doc would need a "submit" or "refresh" in order to collect prior data a use it to display options. Pretty sure the same for outlook forms....

      sorry.. yes I should have said.
      It's a word document. Sounds like it'/s not going to be too easy.

        I am not aware of any way do what you ask, but perhaps a marco and submit and refresh, but then it is harder to distribute.
