Hello experts!!

I just started usind Adobe 10 Pro.

I have 2 dropdowns both with all the same dropdown options.  About 80% of the time the dropdown value in dropdown2 will be the same as in dropdown1, so I want to pre-populate dropdown2 with dropdown1 value but also allow the user to choose another value for dropdown2 if they need to.  

I know that I can popluate dropdown2 from dropdown1 value with the following custom calculation script;

event.value = this.getField("dropdown1").value

This populates the feild just fine, but the user cannot choose a different value other than the one in dropdown1 if they need to.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated!!
