Need help with designing form

Need help with designing form

Need help with designing form

(OP)
Hi
I am pretty new to designing form in adobe acrobat.
I have adobe acrobat 9 standard with Adobe liveCycle Designer installed.

There are couple of things I want to do.

1.
I would like to add a box where I can change the number (default is 1), and when I increase it, (for instance to two)
then
it will postulate the particular sections twice.

For instance, I am taking two drugs right now, then I would like to increase the number of drugs to 2, so then for each drug
I would enter appropriate information such as drug name, drug form, route of drug administration etcs

I hope this is clear

2.
I am trying to export this in xml format so that only the ones where the user fills in in pdf form gets exported to xml format.
I would like the boxes to have its own tag, for instance the drug name mentioned above can have a tag of <drugname></drugname>
I know this is possible through changing the box's name in binding tab.
What I am interested in is to add a tag for the section, like a header.

For example, if I were to enter two drug information I want the first drug information to be exported to be

<drug>
<drugname>blah</drugname><drugform>1</drugform><drugroute>oral</drugroute>
</drug>

<drug>
<drugname>drug2</drugname><drugform>1</drugform>
<drugroute>ophthalmic</drugroute>
</drug>

how would I add <drug> </drug> for each drug?

also, can I change the order of the tags??
in the pdf form, if the drugname box is displayed later than drugroute box, then when I export it, it will display as
<drugroute>oral</drugroute><drugname>blah</drugname>

but I want to manually set the order of tags when exported.


Sorry I asked so many questions :(
I hope it is clear enough for you to visualize what I am trying to do

Thank you so much
