    Custom "Donation Amount" field in autoresponder

    Asked by SusanCantor on November 19, 2016 at 11:13 PM

    I tried to pull the "Donation Amount" (a paypal field) into my email receipt, but it wouldn't just print the dollar amount (eg. "Total $200.00").  It will say: 

    Description (Amount: 200.00 USD)Total: $200.00


    I can't get rid of the subheading "Description".  I created a hidden field and copied the value of the Donation field into it, so I could just pull up the dollar amount - however, that field value came up in brackets (e.g., "{200}").

    Is there a way I can just pull up the number 200.00 (or whatever the user enters as their donation amount)?


    Thanks very much

    I fixed it by switching text state to number in your condition.

    It should give you numbers only this time.
