Topic: How to set additional values within a form field

Hi All -
Creating my first PDF document that auto-populates form fields with data from a database. What I would like to accomplish is to add an additional value to the data that I have just pulled in from the database. For example:

I populate a form field with text using the field name if TIQ_MyAgentName. At the end of the agent name I would like for a comma to appear. Since I'm pulling the agent from the database that doesn't have a comma after the name I need to add this value to the MyAgentName field. Since agent names will vary in character length it would be nice to have the comma appear at the end of the agent name no matter what character lenght it is. How can I accomplish this?

Sincere Thanks,
