Topic: Looking to auto populate 3 fields from combo box
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 142958

Okay, I have the following fields in a PDF Form:

"agent_name" (Combo Box)
"agent_email" (Text Field)
"agent_phone" (Text Field)
"agent" (Text Field)


Selections in Combo Box "agent_name" are as follows:
" " (a space, default)
"John Doe"
"John Smith"
"Jim Jones"


Now, when a name is selected in the Combo Box "agent_name" I would like the following to occur

When "John Doe" is selected, I want the following three fields populated automatically as follows:
"agent_email" = jdoe@website.com
"agent_phone" = 123-456-0001
"agent" = john

When "John Smith" is selected, I want the following three fields populated automatically as follows:
"agent_email" = johnsmith@website.com
"agent_phone" = 123-456-0007
"agent" = smith

When "Jim Jones" is selected, I want the following three fields populated automatically as follows:
"agent_email" = jones@website.com
"agent_phone" = 123-456-0004
"agent" = jjones



Notice there is no ryhme or reason to the text that would automatically populate the other fields, meaning that it is not alway (first inital)(last name)@webite.com for the "agent_email" field or only first name for the "agent" field, rather they all must be entered custom into the script. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Romsky
