# Fillable Form Fields Not Updating

Good Day Everyone,

I am seeing posts on fillable form set calculation order. But nothing explains the order and how it should be set.

Is there a tutorial or white page out there that explains this, or can someone give me a quick schooling on this?

Thanks

Matt

The order of the calculations is from top to bottom of the list.

It should be set in the logical order in which you want the calculations to happen.

For example, if field B uses the value of field A in its calculation, and field C uses the value of field B, then the order must be B followed by C. Otherwise, the value of field C will always be "one step behind" the current value of B.

If field D also uses the value of field B, but not of C, then D can appear after B (B, D, C) or after C (B, C, D). It doesn't matter.
