    Hi,

    Your form http://www.jotform.com/40045119048851 is quite long, and I am having trouble looking for the target field where the value of Date field will be copied using Calculation fields feature.

    Can you please guide me as to which field name I should be checking the calculation done.

    Will await for your updated response.

    Thanks.

    Hello tenzher,

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to achieve your requirement of displaying the value of one fields in another field without using the "Form Calculation Widget".

    I have cloned your form and added the calculation widget in page number "3år" to display the value of field "Företagets namn". Please check the screenshot:

    Unfortunately, it will not working for a date field or any text field as our "Form Calculation Widget" is currently designed for mathematical calculation only. You will see if you input any numbers in "Företagets namn" field, it will be displayed in the "Calculation" field but won't display anything if input type is non numeric.

    As per our developer, the advanced feature is currently under development and may take some time to be released.

    Thank you!

    The thing is, it did work before the last calcylator update, when it was possible to make calculation in text feild, that was also the main resone why i did start to build this form i jotform instead of any other form-site.

    @tenzher

    As my colleagues have stated before, it is not possible to use the calculation widget for the purpose you describe anymore.

    However, I have forwarded a feature request to our development team so that they can consider to implement this functionality to our Widget or to develop a new feature that allows you to accomplish what you need.

    We will inform you via this thread in case this implementation is possible.

    Thanks
