I am looking for some help with form field calculations .

1. I need to multiply "TGAI" * 0.03 , but if  "MedicalExpenses" is empty then leave return the value of "0".

•  this field, when calculated needs to return a negative value

2. If  "HPW" AND "WPY" are blank then leave cell blank if "HPW" AND "WPY" have values then multiply "HW" * "HPY"

Thank you for any help you can provide.

A couple of issues:

1)  You had a validation script AND a calculation script in the field.  Remove the validation script.

2)  You missed the ! in my script, which changes the statement to a value vs no value.  Here's the calculation script again (copy and paste it).

if(!this.getField("MedicalDeduction").value)
{event.value=0}
else
{event.value=this.getField("Calc_TotalGAI").value * .03 * -1}

if(!this.getField("GMI.0").value)
{event.value=25}
else
{event.value=this.getField("Calc_TotalMonthlyPayment").value-this.getField("Utilities").value}
