    Calculation Feature: Total will not be calculated if one of the field is blank.

    Asked by joey@carmaproductions.com on February 07, 2014 at 10:14 AM

    The calculations for each section will only work if there is more than one amount entered within that section.  If there is only one amount entered, the total for that section is blank, but I need for it to reflect the single amount entered or a sum of the multiple amounts entered. Can the calculation be corrected to show a total for single entries as well as multiple entries?

    I have escalated that as a feature request. Hopefully, that will be possible for the calculation feature.

    What you can do at least for now is to add "0" default value to the other fields so the calculation won't hold when the other involved fields are blank and so the total field will get its value right away.
