    I'm totaling fields, but the calculation only shows if all the fields involved are populated.  I've unchecked the box "wait for input before including field in calculation" on all the related fields.

    I figured it out!  If I put a default value of zero in all the fields the calculation will work.

    Hi,

    I am having the exact same issue. I already set all fields to zero and the calculation still needs the populated fields.

    Any solution?

    Thanks.

    Don't worry. I found the problem. I was using the "Number" type of field. It doesn't work with it. Instead, I used the Text field.

    Best regards.
