    On my form I have several calculation fields that calculate a value based on the values of other form controls. All form controls, including the calculation fields have been setup with a default value.

    The default values of the calculation fields are not being recognized when the form loads--each is just blank.

    The 'default result' value is different from 'default value' on text boxes and other fields. It is usually used to add some fixed value for further operations.

    If you would like to populate the BMI calculation field with 25 value, you can:

    - Disable 'Wait for input before including the field in calculation' option.

    - Then, change the default (selected) height to 6’3”.

    The form will calculate the BMI when you load it.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
