I am creating a fairly simple form that allows users to enter a $ amount (overall suggested expense guideline) and then also enter smaller amounts for specific types of expenses (i.e. marketing, postage, etc.). I am asking the field to calculate the % of the overall expense that the smaller amount (postage) makes up.
The error message I receive is: "The value entered does not match the format of the field."
Checking around I assume this is because my calculation is trying to divide by zero.
Here is the info from the calculation:
var amount2 = this.getField("Amount2");
var amount3 = this.getField("Amount3");
event.value == amount3.value / amount2.value;
Amount2 is the overall expense guideline, Amount 3 is the "postage" expense. I am trying to show the % of overall spending guideline.
How can I correct this? Thanks!
