Default Getting a table to total columns

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.

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

The IF field is the conditional field. Graham has provided the required

Instead of using a text form field, you must insert the field code as Graham
gave it. Each pair of field delimiters (the things that look like braces but
can't be entered from the keyboard) must be inserted using Ctrl+F9.

With the document unprotected, press Alt+F9 to toggle the display of the
field codes and modify the calculation field to the following

{ FORMTEXT { =A1 * A2 } \# 0;-0; }

You can replace the 0 with whatever format you require for the result

e.g. 0.00;(0.00);

etc.

All formulas work is template mode if number in A1 AND A2 is recorded

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

Default Getting a table to total columns

Thanks for taking the time and the effort to help me. I must be doing
something wrong. I changed the field code with alt f9 and enterd the text
code you gave me as it is. I still get the 0. Can I email the doc to you to
save us both time and effort or can you do a table with 3 coloms with text
field form, text1 and text2 is a number with format 0 and text3 is a
calculation with format # ##0 (i also tried 0) and email it to me.

I need to change this so that text3 do not display the result of the
calculation if it is is 0.

I will keep trying till I get it right or untill I here from you. I truely
appreciate your inputs and realise that you might get frustrated with my
inability to get it wright. Therefore the suggestion I email the doc to you
or you do a sample as described above and email that to me so I can see what
I am doing wrong.
Is there a way to add an atttachment to this message?

I need to solve this before 08h00 on 06/06/2009 (South-african time)

My e-mail adress is

hurdle. You guys have been very helpfull. Thanks a milion

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.

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

I found the selution through trial and error.

{ FORMTEXT { =A1 * A2 } \# #;-#; } and not { FORMTEXT { =A1 * A2 } \# 0;-0;
} or the IF option.

Thanks for your inputs. It has helped me to get to the selution, believe it
or not.

With the document unprotected, press Alt+F9 to toggle the display of the
field codes and modify the calculation field to the following

{ FORMTEXT { =A1 * A2 } \# 0;-0; }

You can replace the 0 with whatever format you require for the result

e.g. 0.00;(0.00);

etc.
