    Hi--

    I"m trying to create a form based on some calculations.  i.e. multiple number of nights X a rate to get a result.  It seems really finicky.  Sometimes it works, but if I adjust the dollar amount rate, the calculation doesn't work at all and returns blank.

    Help!

    I see that this is about your form 60508291231145, named Trailer Booking Request.

    I see that you are using dollar signs inside of form calculations, which are later used inside other form calculations. So essentially subsequent calculations are encountering dollars signs and numbers instead of just numbers for calculating.

    These are the fields I'm referring to as "intermediary" calculations:

    Can you please remove the dollar sign from your "intermediary" form calculation fields, and see if your form calculations start functioning properly:

    If you continue to experience the issues with your form calculation after removing the dollar sign from those calculations, please let us know what we need to enter/select on the form, what is the result you are getting, and what is the expected result, and we will be happy to check it out why the form is calculating the way it is and how to fix it. Thank you.
