    Seem to be missing fundamental about calculation wizard

    Asked by adatshalom on August 04, 2014 at 02:05 PM

    Thought I had this working, but no longer. If you click payment by check option, you get pulldown menus. The calculator is supposed to multiply first pull down by $20 (as shown in calculator value field) and then add to product of second pulldown field by $10. Thus select 2 and select 1 for $50 total. Now it is just showing 3 (2 plus 1).  


    I was trying to get rid of the default "30" that was showing up (as if it was 1 and 1).

    I understand that you are experiencing issues with calculating fields on the form. I cloned your form to check and found the following that are causing the issues.

    1. The calculation values are set $20 and $10 which is calculating total of 30 by default

    I have removed these values and set them blank.

    2. The calculation wizard formula to be corrected

    Corrected this formula as below :

    Please take a look at the following form and you may clone it for your use. You may also rectify the errors on your form as explained in the screenshots.
