Forms: Text field - auto fill another field? - Adobe Acrobat Macintosh

Someone PLEASE help me... how do i structure a form so that when text is entered into one field, it auto-fills other fields on the form that are equal to the same text? i.e. user fills in "Watermelon" in the first field. This text is also required in 3 other fields on the form. Is there a way to auto-link the fields so that the user only has to type "watermelon" in once? Thanks......

    Default Re: Forms: Text field - auto fill another field? ** with Acrobat 9

    I am using Acobat 9. I want to auto fill other fields, such as last names, addresses, etc., that are in the same doent, but then also other doents. is there a way to link fields of one doent to another? I would also want to have a link, where when a box is checked it would bring up another doent.

    All of these doents are part of packet.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
