Hello to everyone,

 

I just started to use Acrobat Pro DC some days ago. I created a fillable PDF and added all the fields that are needed. Now I need to do some calculations at the end of the document. For the application we need the document to automatically calculate the subtotal for example. My problem is, that in the field properties the taps "calculate" and "validate" are not shown at all. So I don´t know how to add a formula to a field. 

 

Does anybody know what the problem could be?

 

Thanks in advance for help!

Click on Tools - Prepare Form and then click on "More" at the right side of the window and then on "Revert to Acrobat Form". In the future, do not tick the box that says "This document requires signatures" when creating the form.

Thanks a lot for your help. It works now and I can see the calcultion option. 

 

Maybe you can help me with one more question: Is it possible to link an option field with a specific number and use it later for a calculation? For example our customer can decide which premium he or she wants to have (which I solved with option fields) and we need to calculate later on the total amount of the payment.
