I'm working on a form that has many areas for the user to initial. (I am using regular text fields here because I think using multiple signature fields for all this initialing is asking for trouble.) In a few areas, the user needs to SELECT between two or three text fields and ONLY INITIAL ONE. How can I restrict these fields so that only one can be filled out/initialed? I know how to do this for checkboxes, but these fields will need to allow for alphabetic characters, hence my using text fields.

You will have to write some custom JavaScript to either restrict keystrokes or validate the entry on exiting the field. For an exact answer much more information will be needed and you may find providing the full answer maybe quite complex.

Thanks for responding. I don't know JavaScript, which is why I posted in this forum. It seems like I can't be the first person who has had this need. It doesn't seem that unusual of a function to me, so I thought that someone probably already had written the script and would be willing to share. What other information would be needed to accomplish this?
