This is what I have so far:

var total = 0;

var maxFields = 22;

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

if (this.getField("M"+i).value==("Code1")

total+=Number(this.getField("TL"+i).field);

}

event.value = total;

"Code1" is a field within the PDF, something isn't linking. How would I get it so it SUMS all TL if M matches field "Code1"?

Good try   You've got a syntax error and an incorrect property

Here's the corrected code:

`var total = 0;var maxFields = 22;for (var i=1; i<=maxFields; i++) {    if (this.getField("M"+i).value=="Code1")          total+=Number(this.getField("TL"+i).value); }event.value = total;`

To see the reported errors and debug your code you need to use the Console Window. Here's a tutorial:
