I am creating a formula for retirement in adobe acrobat but I am not getting correct results.

=PMT(C17,C18,D16,-D13)

C17 is montly return rate
C18 is # of months until retirement
D16 is current savings
D13 is Amount needed in retirement

var rate = Number(this.getField("C17").value);
var nper = Number(this.getField("C18").value);
var pv = Number(this.getField("D16").value);
var fv = -Number(this.getField("D13").value);

var pmt = (pv * rate) / (1 - Math.pow(1 + rate, -nper)) + (fv / Math.pow(1 + rate, nper));

if (this.getField("C17").value === "" || this.getField("C18").value === "")
event.value = "";
else
event.value = pmt;

What exactly are you getting for the results?  Why is it not correct?  Where is this code placed?

Just to clean up your code, in the if statement use "==" instead of "===".

However, this probably will not change your result.

There is difference in result value. I have placed this code in D19 field in custom calculation script.

So some value is being calculated, just not the correct one?

In this case you will need to debug your calculation script.

To do this, copy the first 5 lines of your script to the console window.

Break the calculation into individual parts, and run them individually to find the issue.

Here's a video tutoial on using the console window.
