Is it possible for me to replicate excel formula (D31)/SIN(RADIANS(D29)) using Simplified Field Notation? I have been playing around with Math.sin(x) but cannot seem to get it to work. Let's just say that D31 is field "Intended Load in lbs." and D29 is field "Angle in degrees". Should it be intendedloadinlbs/Math.sin(angleindegrees)?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm going to help you out a bit with this... Try this code:

var v1 = Number(this.getField("slingsintendedload").valueAsString);

var v2 = Number(this.getField("Slingangleindegrees").valueAsString);

var v3 = Math.sin(degToRad(v2));

if (v3==0) event.value = "";

else event.value = v1 / v3;

function degToRad(v) {

return v * (Math.PI/180);

}

It wouldn't be 0.0174533(angleindegrees) it would be 0.0174533*angleindegrees to multiply.

Does this look more like it? intendedloadinlbs/Math.sin0.0174533*angleindegrees

Thank you for the help. I am certainly no expert, which is why I am hoping someone can throw me a lifeline on this forum. I have taken all suggestions and came back with this custom validation script. I pray I am close to where I need to be. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

event.value = ( this.getField("slingsintendedload").value / Math.sin * 0.0174533 * this.getField("Slingangleindegrees").value

First of all, move the code to be the field's custom calculation script.

Then, when you apply it, you should get this error message:

SyntaxError: missing ) in parenthetical

Fix that and then move on to the next problem, namely that you're not using Math.sin correctly, as it's a function and you need to provide it with a parameter within parentheses, for example:

Math.sin(90)
