    Different question. With
    conditional calculations can you display a text output instead of a number
    calculation.
    Example:
    A user inputs a number in step 1 and as a result in the step two box it
    shows a value of XYZ

    Hello,

    You can make a condition that will return a text output.

    To do so,

    You can write your own text in the textarea under the DO section. Just select the input field and modify your output. Be sure to select your input as a text. You can do this by selecting A-Z option which is next to your field in the text area. I'm attaching an image example for you.

    If there are any points you missed or didn't understand feel free to ask me.

    thanks for this...is it possible to mix numbers and words
    for example I have calculations that I want to "post" to another field but
    I either want to be able to show $ signs or a postscript
    like 2000 kilowatt hours or 2000 kwh
    formula
    (field 0-9)*12/.17 then what goes here
