You can use this code as the custom calculation script of the "lines verified" field to do it (just adjust the field names in the first line):

 

var fields = ["Text1", "Text2", "Text3"];
var totalFilled = 0;
for (var i in fields) {
	if (this.getField(fields[i]).valueAsString!="") totalFilled++;
}
event.value = totalFilled;

You need to be specific about what exactly do you mean by verified.

 

Are you trying to perform anarithmetic calculation that shows the total in another field ? (for example)

 

If yes, you can use the built-in calculating features or employ a JavaScript script.

 

Otherwise, please describe in more detail what type of values are contained in those text fields (i.e. names, numbers, fractions, decimals)

Hello and thanks.

This document is like an invoice; a list of 10 items each with a field for quantities. On the invoice there is a field that needs to verify if there is a quntity in any or all of the quantity fields, not a sum only if there is an entry.
