Hi everyone,

I am a Tech Writer in Brisbane, Australia. I have not been active on this list for quite a while.

I am creating a PDF form-fill in Acrobat 5.0 with Total fields
(eg: TotalField = Sum (+) "FieldA", "FieldB" ) and it is working so far but ...

I would like to be able to :

HIDE TotalField IF TotalField = 0
DISPLAY TotalField IF TotalField NOT = 0

so the form can be printed and completed by hand (with no zeros in TotalField) or form-filled online with TotalFields displayed as they input FieldA and FieldB, etc.

Q1. Is this possible?
Q2. Do I need a script or is there something simple I can put in the Options, Default field?

Any clues please?

Thanks in advance,
