I have 31 text boxes, one for each day of the month.  In each text box there are 5 or 6 different entries, such as P, T, AB, AT.  I want to create a field to total the P's and T's but not the AB's and AT's.  How do I do that?

OK, then you can use this code as the custom calculation script of the total field:var total = 0;for (var i=1; i<=31; i++) {    var v = this.getField("Smith "+ i).valueAsString;    if (v=="P" || v=="T") total++;}event.value = total;Edit: Forgot to add a space after "Smith"...

var total = 0;

for (var i=1; i<=31; i++) {

    var v = this.getField("Smith "+ i).valueAsString;

    if (v=="P" || v=="T") total++;

}

event.value = total;
