Topic: Javascript and Arrays in PDF

Is it possible to set up a simple array in a PDF document (Part No, Desc, Price) for about 300 items that could link to a pop up menu that populates itself.

lemme- splain

This javascript makes a pop up menu
-------------------------------------
var reply = app.popUpMenu(
"Part No.",
"041501",
"-",
"Price",
"117.20",
"-",
"This is the description"
);
--------------------------------------

is it possible to just have the button include the part number and autopopulate the rest of the informtaion from the array in the document javascript?

What about speed, limits on number of part numbers in the arrays etc. Anybody have any suggestions?

The reason for considering this is that the prices could be updated easily if an array handled it rather than just entering the info into every button like above.
