    When using the conditional logic update and calculate field how do I show dollar sign in field?

    Asked by KeyshaunSmith on February 19, 2016 at 01:55 PM

    I am using the Update and Calculate field option to calculate a monetary total for all of the options selected throughout the multiple pages of the form. I am able to get the form to successfully calculate the total but I can not figure out how to get it to place a dollar sign in front. Please advise thanks! I have even tried placing the dollar sign as the last thing in the "question text" but it just appears too far away from the actual calculated amount that it does not look professional.

    I understand that you want to add $ sign in front the calculated result of the text box. If so, you can type $ sign in the calculation field so that the $ sign shall be displayed automatically in the text box.

    This is how the result should be displayed.

    Hope this information helps! If you are referring to something different or need any further assistance, please let us know. We will be happy to assist.
