    I refer to test form /70905186419966

    I used to be able to use the POWER function by means of the CALCULATE FORMS WIDGET;

    Right now i cannot find a way to set up the power function widget, where you use dto be able to use the comma (,) in the formular.
    I cannot get the comma in, and the widget has no comma built in.

    It is explained in

    But this does not seem to work anymore..

    What am I doin wrong?

    Hello Jan, the pow() function still exists and works as intended. Keep in mind that you should use the proper format when using this:

    pow (base, exponent)

    To place the comma, just type it in. Afterwards, press the TAB key on your keyboard. It will turn into a square with a brown background. You need to click it afterwards so the background turns to black as shown below.

    Here's the form: 70905715838969
