In that case plan B. Replace the calculated formfield with a conditional
field. If the field bookmark names remain A1 & A2

{ IF{ ={ A1 } * { A2 } } 0 { ={ A1 } * { A2 } \# "0.00"} }

Set the switch \# "0.00" appropriate to your needs
The field will show a syntax error if there is no value in A1 or A2, so set
those field types to number and put a default 0 in each.

Thanks Doug!!! Form calculations now running smooth! Need one more
input from you, please. How do I get the result of a calculation to
not show 0. I want the field to be blank if result is 0.



Insert Text Input FormFields in A1 and A2 and set the Calculate on
Exit property of each. Assuming that you name bookmarks assigned to
those fields as A1 and a2, in A3, insert a calculation type
formfield that contains the expression =A1 * A2

In tables in word:

A1 =2 A2=4 A3= SUM(LEFT) OR A1*A2
All formulas work is template mode if number in A1 AND A2 is
recorded when formula is set. There after ctrl+a, f9 updates field
in template. If template
is protected or saved as word document A3 never changes when A1 OR
A2 changes. Ctrl+a, F9 or right click also does not work. Form with
calculation
of no use to customers or our company! Need to get A3 formula to
automaticly
update when A1 OR A2 changes if template is protected or saved as
word document. See book-keeping slip template under forms on online
templates. This is what formulas should do! Book-keeping slip is
protected and cannot see formula!

This isn't any different from previous versions, is it?

Like everything else in the new version (I've used it maybe 1
year now,
still find it abysmal for navigation), it is a hell of a lot
harder to find.

And even try searching for "formula" in help - nothing!

Lots of fancy stuff in the new version about making your
document look pretty, but as for useability, it was a huge
retrograde step!
