**mamoros**Hello -

How can I specify that a number field is a percentage or currency with the appropriate symbol, such as the percent sign, dollar sign, pound sterling sign, etc?

Thank you,

Melinda

**EltonCris**Are you trying to perform a calculation on the numeric field and append a currency symbol?

If yes, you can do that in the form calculation wizard. Here's a guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-perform-calculation-in-the-form

By the way, since symbols are not allowed on the numeric field, I suggest using a regular textbox field instead.

If I have misunderstood your question, kindly provide more details on what you're trying to achieve. Thanks!

**mamoros**Hello Elton - I have used the "Calculation" widget to perform the

mathematical functions, so I'm good with that. I would like to show on

the form that the number refers to dollars or percent. How can I do that?

For example, I have a numeric field for annual income in which I

multiply the monthly income * 12. How do I show that number is

referring to currency?

Another example is percent. I have a field to indicate the COLA (cost

of living adjustment) percentage. I have used whole numbers for these

fields, but there is nothing to indicate that it's a percentage. For

example, to indicate a 2% COLA, I have entered 2. Should I enter .02?

How will it be identified as a percentage?

Thank you for your help!

Melinda
