I have a question for you. I am trying to create an invoice as a form that I can fill out quickly and send to customers. I know I can add amounts together to get a subtotal of a sale, but would like to get Acrobat to calculate sales tax automatically once I reach the space for tax on my invoice. I looked in the help section and there s something called Javascript that hints I can do this but I don't know how to write it out.
You can reach me at: red90a@ev1.net

Why wouldnt you use excel to develop your invoices - its able to do everything you want then print it as a pdf using distiller or pdf writer.

While acrobat has the ability to make forms and such, it is really not good for creating invoices.
