Topic: Open Documents from a list box

I am using Acrobat 6. I am creating a "Table of Contents" for a list of forms. I would like to create a drop down list and when the user selects the form name from the list the document will open.

I want to do this because our customers typically will buy 30 forms from us. Rather than just give the PDFs to the customer, by providing them a Table of Contents, they can just click on the name of the form and the form opens up.

However, listing 30 forms on a page is cluttered and hard to read. I thought providing drop down lists with the forms listed by category would be a nice way to present a clean format for the customer. I am unable to figure out how to open a form from a drop down list.

Is there a way to do this.

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.
