    Add "$" to calculation field?

    Asked by Billbully on January 21, 2016 at 11:03 PM



    In my #3 form, I have a bunch of calculations and I am using this form to send an email to the client.  Therefore, having the form have a $ in it would make it much easier to automate. Is there a way to do this? Example fields are "negotiated price" and "total savings".
