Topic: newbie question - form calculations

hi. i am totally new to JS and rather than do a course i try to learn on the fly so bear with me as this is probably a very basic question.

i have a PDF form with text fields (number format) that require simple calculation.

the following script is in the "custom calculation script" of a field called COST:

var p = this.getField("purchaseprice").value;
var d = this.getField("deposit").value;
var t = this.getfield("tradein").value;
event.value = p.value - d.value - t.value;

the error i get is

JavaScript error in Compute Field script of field "COG" at line 0: this.getField("purchaseprice") has no properties

is it my syntax or am i supposed to add code to another part of the form?

i am using Version 4.0 - should i upgrade?
