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.
