    Calculation inside of my form is not correct

    Asked by tomorrownight on July 15, 2016 at 08:38 AM


    Me again asking the same question - Ive got a calculation that adds +7 to the number 65 and outputs at 71, and i dont understand how this is possible.  65 + 7 is 100% definitely 72.  I dont even understand how computers could be wrong in this... they are literally called COMPUTERS. 


    anyway, thanks for any help.

    Is this issue related to your field Activity (TBA)

    I have cloned and tested you form and I was able to replicate mentioned issue. This is happening because you have set calculation value of that field to 6. 

    How to Assign Calculation Value

    I also saw that you have set calculate field condition for that field. You can resolve your issue by setting calculation value of that field to 7 or by removing calculation value (then your condition will perform calculation). 

    Inside of my cloned form I have set calculation value to 7.

    Here is my demo form: https://www.jotformpro.com/form/61964390189972? 

    Feel free to test it and clone it

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
