Then unfortunately, you are stuck with what you have. There is no generic solution for our problem. You could try to talk to Adobe for a new feature in Acrobat 10, but I suspect that the market for something like this is too small for them to consider it. Sorry.

Are you using "real" AcroForms (created in Acrobat), or are these forms created in Designer?

OK, let's rephrase that question: Do you use Acrobat or Designer to edit the forms?

i am using Acrobat Professional 8.1.0 to edit the forms i.e. i am converting static forms into Fillable forms using Acrobat Professional 8.1.0

Sorry for the delay.

How familiar are you with JavaScript? The general idea is that you create a custom keystroke script that gets run every time the user enters a character. The problem is that you also have to deal with non-printable characters (e.g. delete or backspace).

To create such a keystroke script, bring up the properties for your field, and select the "Format" tab, then select the "Custom" entry in the "Category" list. Click on the "Edit" button next to the "Custom Keystroke Script" field. The following event properties are important to implement the functionality you are looking for:
event.changeEx - the character typed
event.selStart - the starting position for the current text selection
event.selEnd- the ending position for the current text selection
event.value - the string value before the new keystroke is applied.

If selStart and selEnd are the same, you are dealing with a "normal" keystroke that's inserted into the string. I would first get the length of the current strings (both, the first and the second input field), and depending on that information, and if a character is replaced or inserted, apply the new keystroke. If the keystroke is empty, that means you are dealing with a special character, and don't have to do anything.

You might run into problems with Copy&Paste - pasting more than one character can potentially cause your script to fail.

Is this enough information to get you started?
