    How Can I Add Dollar Signs to Formula?

    Asked by artieharris on March 25, 2016 at 07:49 AM

    I have been reading the forum.  Adding a "$" to my formulas sounds simple.  I've been trying but the "$" is not showing up.  Please help!  

     

    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    You can easily achieve this issue by using the "Form Calculation" widget instead of using the "Update/Calculate Field" condition. I know, this means that you need to change the whole structure of the form; but it is really simply to do when you get the idea.

    Before illustration, you can check the guide from the below to get more information about the widget:

    Actually, the work principle is the same with the condition, please check the example calculation formula from the below:

     

    The results are just like the same with the image below:

     

    Please, try this method and do let us know, if you encounter any error.

    Regards.
