    How can I easily calculate fields that contain text?

    Asked by VickiH on February 01, 2017 at 10:14 PM

    I have multiple fields to add up and the selection contains text (ex:"Not Riding") to guide them since there are multiple selections.   Then I have other fields that will be added or subtracted from that fields to get a final total. The text may be hindering the calculation but I'm not sure how to get them calculated without redesigning the entire form. HELP!

     I'm sure if I posted this or not so forgive me if this is a duplicate ;-/
