I created a PDF form and am using radio buttons. I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro XI. I have been creating fillable forms for about a year now but want to take the extra step. I have 15 different group of radio buttons named "Observation Group 1 to  Observation Group 15" and in each group i have 3 choices " compliant, non-compliant and not applicable". i would like to be able to total each of the 3 choices ( how many compliant, how many Non-compliant etc) in another box. I think I would need a script file for this. I think it goes in the "Calculate" or in the "action" properties but really have no clue how to do it.  I have read a lot of this forum and would love any help you could bring. In my head it doesn't seem very hard when I explain what I want but I might be wrong.

No, it's not too difficult. You can use this code as the custom calculation script of the first total field:var total = 0;for (var i=1; i<=15; i++) {    if (this.getField("Observation Group "+i).valueAsString=="compliant") total++;}event.value = total;Adjust the value in line #3 to use it for the other total fields.

That was exactly what I was looking for. While reading through this forum I had noticed that "try67" is super helpful and was very happy to see that you had responded to my problem. Thank you very much for the help. I looked through the script and pretty much understood what you had done. Hope to be able to this on my own soon....
