I am trying to add a numeric value to a text field on an order form in acrobat. Have done it in the past, but can't figure out how to do it again. I need it to provide the dollar cost of an item for calculation. I don't know Java Script but if I am given a formula could probably follow it. The text box name is $10.50. Thank you.
Can you give more info please, is it two or more fields you want to sum or?
You want to write value in text field?
If you copy fields from another file, make sure fields are not 'read only' by using 'Prepare form' tool and right click field and select field 'properties', in 'General' tab on lower right look at where it say 'Read Only' and make sure little box is unchecked.
Here is your file that you shared in another post, I added fields and script to calculate totals, just enter quantity and price, and it should calculate. Let me know if that's what you wanted.
Enter the number in the form text field.
This is a bad name for a field. Use a meaningful name, not one with special characters (like "$") or just a number. Something like "Cost1". Then you would be able to use it more easily in the built-in Calculation options.
