I am trying to create a travel form. I have one column where a person adds their mileage, a second column that contains the reimbursement rate, and a third column that is a calculated field of the two previous fields. My problem is that in the field where the user enters their mileage, it needs to only allow 2 decimal places. As it stands, the user can enter as many decimal places as they wish and it rounds it to two places. If it is not possible to limit the number of decimal places, is it possible to multiply by the number that Adobe rounds to. For example, if the user enters 2.345 and Adobe rounds it to 2.35 because I have it set to two decimal places. I need the calculated field to use the 2.35, not 2.345 which is what it does now. I think I need to use some sort of Javascript to do it but I am not familiar with the language. Is there and easier way?

For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
