Can you script dropdown field outputs to run document level functions?

Have a dropdown field ddSheets with outputs of "Select", "1 sheet", "2 sheet", "3 sheet" and "4 sheet". Was hoping that on the selection of ddSheets option, that a document level function for that specific selection would run i.e. Sheet1(), Sheet2(), Sheet3(), Sheet4().

Sure. You can use this code as the custom validation script of the field:

if (event.value=="1 sheet") Sheet1();
if (event.value=="2 sheet") Sheet2();


Just make sure you tick the option to commit the selected value immediately under the field's Properties, Options tab.
