How do I multiply a numerical form field by a specific number that is not in a form field?  I have absolutely no experience with Javascript.  Please HELP!

Let's say the first field is called Text1 and you want to multiply its value by 8 and show the result in Text2.

You can do it using this code as the custom calculation script of Text2:

event.value = Number(this.getField("Text1").valueAsString) * 8;
