    You can type Comma (,) directly in the calculation formula. Please see the screenshot below to see how the Pow function can be used.

    This is the result of a test on a demo form.

    Hope this information helps!

    Hi Kiran

    When I use keyboard instead of the keypad of JotForm it does not accept and it puts a brown box on characters which I entered with my keyboard directly .

    As you see in this screen shot I have typed "," with computer keyboard but it is different from the "," that is in the sample form for the POW function.

    I don't know what is my mistake ?!!!!!!!!!

    Please click on the comma symbol in order to change its format. It should fix the issue.

    Thank you.
