What am I doing wrong? Acrobat form with formula

I have tried everything I've found online to try and get one simple formula to work on the attached form, but I'm not having any luck. The Revenues Over (Under) Expenditures line in the 2nd and 3rd columns should be the sum of the Total Support/Revenues minus the sum of the Total Expenses/Expenditures. All my other formulas on this page appear to work, but I can't get this one to work. I've been doing this in the Simplified Field Notation under the Calculate tab and nothing works. What am I doing wrong? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

Simplified field notation doesn't work well with fields that include dots in their names (spaces too).

Try to enter like this:

Thanks so much for your help. Telling me that it doesn't like all the dots in the names helped immensely. I just changed the field names and the formula works now!!  

 

Again, thanks so much!!!
