    I have changed the "Default Result" on calculated fields from "0" to "Click to edit." However, it still populates the field with "0".

    Asked by collinsmngt on December 07, 2014 at 08:11 PM

    This causes the submission to show all the calculated fields with a value of "0", instead of the null value I'm looking to achieve. I'm running a parts list that is very long, and it's causing all the parts on the list to print with a value of "0" instead of utilizing the "Auto Hide Empty Fields" feature. Any thoughts?

    Hello collinsmngt,

    It seems you are right. The default value property of the "Form Calculation" does not save the blank / null value. If we change the default value to blank/bull, it does save it but when the form is loaded again it default to "0" again.

    I am reporting it to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update form them. 

    Thank you!
