Topic: LiveCycle Designer formula does not work
Conf: (P-PDF) What's Wrong with my PDF?, Msg: 163590

I am using Adobe LiveCycle 8.05. I am using formCalc to enter simple formulas.

In my example I have 6 fields to add amounts (numbers)


I was successful in creating the calculation to add the fields "field_a + field_b + field_c" to get the answer to appear in field "d". However, in field "f" I entered "field_d + field_e" expecting the answer to appear in field "f". But the amount was still $0. I need to have the results appear in this manner:

$100.00 Claim amount
+ $50.00 Expenses
+ $10.00 Filing Fees
= $160.00 Sub Total
+ $20.00 Processing Fee
= $180.00 Total

What am I doing wrong?
