Adobe Livecycle Drop Down Lists

I have a PDF form that I created in LiveCycle Designer and I need to apply some programming to a drop down list.

The first item on the form is labeled  "Action Requested", in which you can choose an item from the drop down list.

At the bottom of the form there are eight drop down boxes that are used for routing the form around the office using office symbols. Which may or may not be in numerical order.

 so, with each action request there is different office routing.

 Example:

 Action Requested; Name Change

 1. LOGIN (default on all forms)
 2. Office Symbol 1
 3. Office Symbol 2
 4. Office Symbol 3
 5. Office Symbol 4
 6. Office Symbol 5
 7. Office Symbol 6
 8. Office Symbol 7

 Action Requested; Adverse Action

 1. LOGIN (default on all forms)
 2. Office Symbol 1
 3. Office Symbol 4
 4. Office Symbol 3
 5. Office Symbol 2
 6. Office Symbol 5
 7. Office Symbol 7
 8. Office Symbol 6


 What I want to automate is that when an Action is selected that it populates the office symbols in an order that I specify.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
