Hi, I've spent a couple hours looking through various forum threads, but I can't seem to get this to work, could someone help me?

I'm trying to create a PDF form that works in the following way:
1. User opens the PDF in Adobe reader
2. User sees an input field at the top of the page, where they input a number
3. At multiple places in the document, the number that the user entered is repeated.

So far, I've found that I should be using form fields? Like user or input fields? I can see how to create a field, which then gets repeated in the document. But I can't see how to create a field that allows a user to input text into, and then the text gets repeated... All of this should happen once the document has been converted to PDF
