    How to add a formula to a field which calculates the total and/or percentage of those values to be automatically posted in another field.

    Asked by noycenortheast on April 03, 2012 at 02:59 PM

    If I am collecting numbers from various fields on a form, I would like to create a field which is automatically updated based on the values in those fields.

    For example

     InputField1 = 5

    InputField2 = 4

    InputField3 = 4

    OutputField1 = InputField1 + InnputField2 + InputField3

    OutputField2 = OutputField1 divided-by 100

    What is needed is some basic calculations that you can find on any spreadsheet

    Currently, our forms are not able to calculate and show percentages, however , you might use the Matrix form , which is under the  Survey Tools, which allows you to get the total from previous input fields

    Hope this sorts out your question. Should you need more assistance, let us know

    I need a way to calculate the sum of the columns in a matrix. I can't figure out the matrix calculation tool. Is there a tutorial for it?
