I am putting together a clothing order form for our employees. They have three clothing options to choose from. Each clothing line has a description of the item, base price, blank box for size, blank box for the QTY they want and then a total. At the end of the forum is a subtotal, add tax (6% Idaho sales tax) and final total boxes.
Subtotal=Total boxes added together
On Adobe Acrobat all my simple equations work but once I email it, the equations stop working and the boxes just show zeros. I really need these equations to work so employees know exactly what they owe when they submit their order.
Instruct the users to download the file and open it in Reader.
Complain to the developers of the software that's not working correctly about this issue.
That's all you can do about it, pretty much.
Sure, but if the built-in formulas didn't work, that's unlikely to work, too.
For example, for the "total" field you can use this script:
event.value = Number(this.getField("baseprice").value)*Number(this.getField("QTY").value);
