Hi Hope you can help - giving probably way to much detail here:

I am getting "the value entered does not match the format of the field [text1]

I changed the format of  all fields to 0 decimal points because I am trying to calcualte sheet count ( whole numbers) needed for print production:

F1 is record count

F2 is # of pages

F3 is simplex or duplex

F4 is imposition

I have to multiply the Record count * number of pages * (1 simplex) or (2 duplex) then divide the imposition to get the total sheets needed for production  ex:  10 records x 4 pages = 40 x simplex = 40 / imposition lets say "2" = 20 sheets of paper to complete the job.

I think I have this covered in my calculation below, except the error is at F4. I do not know how to clear it.

var f1 = this.getField("calc1A").value;
var f2 = this.getField("calc1B").value;
var f3 = this.getField("calc1C").value;
var f4 = this.getField("calc1D").value;
if (f2&&f3&&f4==0) event.value=0;
var f5=f1*f2*f3;
event.value= f5/f4;

Replace this part of the code:     if (f2&&f3&&f4==0) event.value=0; var f5=f1*f2*f3; event.value= f5/f4;     With this:     if (f4==0) event.value=""; // I changed it because zero is NOT the correct result. It should be nothing at all, as division by zero is not allowed. else { var f5=f1*f2*f3; event.value= f5/f4; }

Replace this part of the code:

``````if (f2&&f3&&f4==0) event.value=0;
var f5=f1*f2*f3;
event.value= f5/f4;``````

With this:

``````if (f4==0) event.value=""; // I changed it because zero is NOT the correct result. It should be nothing at all, as division by zero is not allowed.
else {
var f5=f1*f2*f3;
event.value= f5/f4;
}``````

Just a tip, if you want to use f2,f3 and f4 when comparing them you need to change

this: (f2&&f3&&f4==0)

to this: (f2==0&&f3==0&&f4==0)

In this case you probably want to use OR, not AND, and also this is not needed at all, since if f1 or f2 or f3 are zero the result will be zero anyway. It's only f4's value that needs to be tested in this way.
