    Im currently in the medical field and have been tasked with building interactive pdf forms.

    I’m using InDesign and Im just now discovering the possibilities with the Extend Script Toolkit.

    Problem
    I have hundreds of text fields that I’m manually changing. It’s taking forever.

    Is it possible to write a javascript that will rename all text fields.

    I have a deadline on this project by Monday.

    Any help would be greatly appriciated

    Craig, another idea would be to script it in Acrobat instead of InDesign. (I don’t know which is easier/better; just another approach.) More info at pdfscripting.com
