    Can't auto fill PayPal field with amount from another field

    Asked by zifboxbiz on November 23, 2016 at 03:23 AM

    I'm having trouble doing something that I've done before. But, the system seems to have changed and it doesn't seem to be working the way it use to.

    I want to fill the PayPal amount with a value from another field. There is an option in the PayPal wizard the offers 'Get price from', but the only option available is 'None (Manual)'.

    I've created a hidden field that is filled with the amount once the PayPal option is selected. Calculating that value directly into the PayPal amount field doesn't seem to work.

    Let me know what you think.

    Sorry, just worked it out. The 'look up' field need to be a 'calculation' field.

    That seems to solve it.
