    Field names in calculation wizard are incorrectly displayed

    Asked by WOT on April 02, 2015 at 02:48 PM

    I cannot get this calculation tool to work.

    1. The fields I need to add are text boxes labeled "Points max20" and so on. The fields I am offered in the calculation wizard are labeled something different.

    2. I've inserted the fields, + sign as shown in the example, but the values are not calculating.

    Am I missing something? Please help!

    Please be noted that the field names are displayed in the calculation wizard and not the field labels. The fields names can be viewed/changed from the respective field properties.

    As I check your JotForm (http://www.jotform.us/form/50906897820162), it seems to be working fine with the total.

    Hope this information helps. Please get back to us if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.
