    I'm not quite sure about what you mean on "they are both coming up blank". Do you mean to say they do not appear on the notification anymore when you received it on your email? Can you name the form and the two fields you are referring to?

    Regarding on your other question, you can hide the field by right clicking it then select Hide while on edit mode. Check this visual guide:

    May I also request you to post each non-related questions to a separate thread next time so we won't be ending up jumping to another topics on this thread.

    Hi, I was checking  the  calculation fields formula, and I see they were not declare correctly, that´s why no results shows, please replace it by this:

    Firs field calculation:

    Second Field calculation:

    I cloned your form, and submitted mine and entered some random numbers, and it displays the results:

    You can take a look at my form, or cloned if you want to, hope this helps you and let us know if you need more assistance.
