Check Box 2.0 - 2.9

Check Box 3.0 - 3.9

Check Box 4.0 - 4.9

Check Box 5.0 - 5.9

In that case you can use this code as the custom calculation script of the field where you want to show the result:

 

var total = 0;
for (var i=1; i<=5; i++) {
	var fields = this.getField("Check Box "+i).getArray();
	for (var j in fields) {
		if (fields[j].valueAsString!="Off") total++;
	}
}
event.value = total;

I'm assuming you mean the ticked check-boxes... If not, the answer is 50.

Sorry - but any chance of dumbing that down for me ... I'm unsure of where that script needs to go for it to work?  I have a Total Boxes Checked line for the number to go - but unsure of how to apply that script to that total line.

 

Appreciate all your help!

Go to the Properties of the field, Calculate tab and put that code under the third option, "Custom calculation script".
