    Inserting Hidden Calc Value into Payment Amount Field.

    Asked by faithmusic on June 23, 2016 at 02:08 AM



    I am trying to insert a calc value into a payment amount field based on a conditional format. Attached is the calc that i'm doing along with the conditional insert that technically should work.

    This used to work .. has this function been broken or is there a different way to accomplish this?


    Thanks for your help!
