    Calculation wizard losing the formula

    Asked by acspa on February 17, 2014 at 03:57 AM

    I'm using radio buttons and a text box to do a calculate field formula. It works perfectly the first time.

    When I go back into the text box calculate field options, the formula has disappeared and the field option are not available on the right.

    Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

    Hi acspa

    just a hunch

    try to uncheck  the check box "Wait for input before inlcluding fields in calculation"

    then go to settings and clear up the Jotform cache and then try to save and preview the form.

    how to clear the cache:
