    How to use the matrix field with numeric type and calculation values?

    Asked by AlfaIndoJaktim on February 28, 2017 at 07:36 AM

    if i set input type to numeric text box, can i get the result from the form calculation?

    for example if i set the calculation value (200), and then i fill the field on matrix calculation (2), the result will be 400.

    Can anyone help me to build that form?

    thanks so much....

    Unfortunately, the calculation values set to the Matrix field do not work when the field type is set to the Numeric field. The calculation values are intended to work with checkboxes or radio buttons field type only in the Matrix field. 

    Hope this information helps!
