Greetings,

I am using Acrobat Pro 8 to create a form.
The form contains two combo boxes (A & B).
I am looking for a sample java script that narrows down the options in box B based on what is selected in box A.

Example:

If user chooses "fruit" in box A, the only choices in box B are "apple" and "orange". If they choose "vegetable" in box A, the choices are "carrot" and "onion" in box B.

The kicker is that I have to do that for 100+ categories in box A to narrow down from 1050+ options in box B, so any ideas on streamlining the input process would also be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
rob
