Good morning everyone - i have a pdf form that has 12 fields - 5 are hidden - its a calculator of sorts.

 

The user puts in their annual earnings, and based off of field3 - field4 is supposed to dive field3 by 12 and generate a number - but it's not working. i've tried this in the in the Simplified Field Notation area:

 

 

Annual_Bill_Rev/12months

 

 

 

the 12months is a hidden field with a default value of 12. If i can figure this out, i can probably figure out the other elements as well. so that i may get those other fields working.

 

i need this by End of Day today so i suuuuuuure hope someone can shed some light on this for me. Pretty please?!

 

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

This should be working ... 

Check the «Set Field Calculated Order...» Setting.

So, where i had Annual_Bill_Rev/12months - and 12months being a field with a default value set as 12 - i only needed to put the specified notation in as follows : Annual_Bill_Rev/12
