    I have setup forms which autopopulate to a gmail doc spreasheet.  Calculation fields the are negative come over as text, rather than a number, causing error in my form calculations

    I tested downloading and excel sheet of form submissions of the form 72133313523242 and as shown below I could not replicate the issue you are experiencing.

    I was able to perform form calculations even of the negative values as shown.

    Would you kindly recheck that you are performing calculations on the correct fields and that the fields are Numeric?
