Calculating Monthly Income from one of several different fields

Hello, I am trying to create a monthly income calculator. We need monthly income in order to determine if an applicant is eligible for a particular benefit or service, however, sometimes applicants are unaware of how much money they make on a monthly basis but they do know how much they make weekly or biweekly or semi monthly or yearly. I want to calculate the MONTHLY field based on what is entered on at least one of these fields. Can someone please help?

I would use the Validation event of those fields for that.

For example, as the custom Validation event of Annual Income you can enter something like this:

 

if (event.value) this.getField("Monthly").value = Number(event.value) / 12;

 

Using the same logic, multiply by 4 to get the result from the Weekly field and multiply by 2 for Bi-Weekly.

I'm not sure what you mean by "semi-monthly", but I think you can get the gist of how it works... Plus, it will allow the user to enter a value into the Monthly field directly, if they wanted to do so.

Thank you so much!!

Respectfully, people who are paid bi-weekly are paid 26 times a year. 

People who are paid semi-monthly are paid 24 times a year, so the calculation is a little different for each. 

I highly appreciate your help.

OK, then adjust the formula to however you want it to work. It was merely an example.
