    CALCULATION Wizard: Not displaying total when the selected option on checkbox has non-numeric data

    Asked by john.roscoe on March 12, 2014 at 06:30 PM

    The new calulation wizard is nearly fixed, but there are still some bugs - (I have raised separate threads for tracking each one) 

    1. Blank and non-numeric data are now treated as zero for standard text fields and for radio buttons but doesnt work for checkbox multiple selections.

    If ONLY numeric values are selected, the correct result is calulated

    list selection

    If one or more non-numeric values is selected the calculation fails.

    calculation with non-numeric value
