    Hi,

    My apologies, your screencast is a flash file and since it is from an unknown source, it is not something we can open.  If you wouldn't mind letting us know which form you are having trouble with and how to recreate the issue, we will be happy to have a look.

    I am able to reproduce the issue on my end, it seems specific to using certain fields.  For example, if I use this field in any equation:

    It causes all equations to be blank after saving.  I will look in to this a bit more to see what specifically may be causing the issue.

    I am unable to recreate this issue in any other form, is this the only form that this is happening with?

    It looks to be due to some of the spinner fields.  When I replaced the spinner fields with new ones, the calculation worked once again.  However, each time I tried to include one of the original, all calculation were removed.  If you can replace your spinner fields with new ones, the form will likely function properly once again.

    YESS! I did it!

    than all i needed is to set spinner value field instead! The value (number) not always properly considered in the calculator! Although my project is just a numeric field and they normally read in the calculator!!
