    is there a way to remove the figure in the calculation field before any data has been entered, as soon as some starts entering data i don't mind the result been shown.

    at the moment its shows a figure of 50.94, this correct I just don't want to show it before a user starts using the calculator.


    many thanks

    It seems that there are multiple calculation fields that are interlinked each other. Also, I notice that there are some drop down boxes that are hidden being used in the calculation fields. Since these dropdown boxes are having only one value and hidden, I think it would be better to use number field for calculation fields.

    In general, the option Wait for input before including the field in calculation from Advanced options of calculation field should help in calculating the field after having the input the calculating fields.

    Also, it may be helpful for you to enabling Show empty decimal places. Please try enabling these options from all the calculation fields and it may also be helpful if dropdown boxes are replaced with number field.

    Let us know if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.
