Topic: auto populate 2 text boxes w/dif info from combo box (Acrobat 6 Prof.) (Via Email)

First, let me say that the forum was very helpful in getting me 50% of the
way toward my desired outcome but I can not seem to get through the last

What I am trying to do is automatically populate two different text boxes
within a real estate contract PDF form I created based on a single selection
from a combo box. For example, if our Sales Manager is writing a "Custom
Home" contract (selected from the combo box), I would like to automatically
fill in one text box with the word "Builder" and a different text box with
the word "Owner". A selection of "Production Home" contract from the combo
box would result in automatically populating the fields with "Seller" and

I can get one box to fill based on the export value of the combo box, but I
can not get the second box to fill. Here is the code I have so far (thanks
to the forum):

cBox = this.getField("ContractType");

target1 = this.getField("SellerLegalReference");

target1.value = cBox.value;

Solving this will allow me to cut the form addenda we have in half and
result in the need to only revise a single base document as laws are

Many Thanks,
