I am trying to do a couple (maybe too many) things at once. I am using Acrobat 5.0, and I am automating a form for a US State government. At the top of the form is a field for an account number (which I called licNum), which can be between 10000-19999, or 30000-39999. I think I did it correct with the following:
var re = /^[1]|[3]\d{4}$/

Now, here is my next issue. Further down on the form is another field, labeled Lic1 (it goes to Lic18, obviously there are 18 lines that can be entered). If the number in licNum is in the 1XXXX range, the number in Lic1 has to be in the same range (10000-19999), but not the same number. If the number in licNum is in the 3XXXX range, the number in Lic1 has to be 6 digits, starting with a number in the 3-8 range.

I am getting comfortable with regular expressions, but I am not sure how to get the value of licNum into the validation script for Lic1, and then when I do, how can I set the two different formats? I understand if statements, but I still get hung up on small things (like why is equals sometimes ==, and sometimes =). Thanks for any help you can give.
