Are you using a script for the calculation, or something else?

If you're not using a script, you'll need to. The basic code to achieve it is:

`var v1 = Number(this.getField("Text1").valueAsString);var v2 = Number(this.getField("Text2").valueAsString);var v3 = Number(this.getField("Text3").valueAsString);var total = v1+v2+v3;event.value = (total==0) ? "" : total;`
