    When the address is exported into my PDF it looks like this. a:5:{s:5:”line1″;s:15:”4721 Parker Rd”;s:4:”city”;s:7:”Modesto”;s:5:”state”;s:2:”CA”;s:3:”zip”;s:5:”95357″;s:7:”country”;s:13:”United States”;} Not sure how to remedy this problem. Maybe there is a way in Acrobat to accept the different entries? Or should I just make the address entry a single line box?

    Also, I have some boxes setup in my PDF form that calculates a value based on entries in other boxes. It doesn’t seem to run when the data is exported from the online form unless I go into the calculation click edit (change nothing) and close it. Then the calculation runs and the values appear. Is there a way to force the calculations to run once the data is exported into the PDF?

    Thanks,
    Jacob Erwin

    Formidable’s Address field requires “Address” to be selected in the Format dropdown field on the field map. Depending on how the PDF address fields are laid out, you may need to map the address field more than once to fill all the PDF forms.

    All number calculations must be done in Formidable using hidden fields then merged to the PDF, there is no way to run the number fields without using PDF javascript, which we do not support.

    Still working on sorting out how the PDF actually formats the address but I think I’m getting close.

    I added hidden fields with calculations and it appears to be working wonderfully, thank you!
