I have the following script.  This script concatenation the first and last name into one field. When i run the application the first and last name are filled in.  The new field shows up blanks.  After opening the calculated function and closing it the data appears in the new field.  I need the calculated field to appear when I run the application.

var s1 = this.getField("insured.fields.first_name").valueAsString;

var s2 = this.getField("insured.fields.last_name").valueAsString;

event.value = s1 + " " + s2;

Do the other name fields also have a calculated value?

There just single fields.  First Name and Last Name,  I am concatenating together to make a username in one field.  When I open the calculated editor the fields shows up with the correct name.

Then it should work fine. Can you share the actual file with us (via Dropbox, Google Drive, Adobe DC, etc.)?

Have you opened the JavaScript console to check for any errors?

You JavaScript should work if you have the correct field names, including spelling, special characters, and capitalization.
