Trying to just create this simple formula, but it doesnt seem to be working. Thoughts? For context both the variables are calculated by adding other fields in the Adobe Form.
(Head Count_Totals*0.5)-(Primary Workpoints_Totals*1)
For "Simplified Field Notation", the fields cannot contain spaces or punctuation.
The solution is to rename the fields to remove all spaces and punctuation.
Hey I removed all the spaces, but it still doesn't seem to be working. I'm almost wondering if its not recognizing the variables, idk...
The names in the script must exactly match the names of the form fields.
Are any errors reported in the Console Window?
Also, the calculation you've shown will only work in the Simplified Field Notation Calculation area.
Thanks for the reply. I'm still not getting it right somehow. I was wondering if you could tell me how this would be different if I did it in the Java script instead of the simple notation?
What field names does you use?
You can read all about writing basic calculation scripts here:
You could also post your form so we can look at it.
Add a back-slash before each space in your fields' names, or use a script.
