Hi Llewellyn,

You are correct that FormMaker does not support Acrobat’s “simple field notation” at this point. However, I think it should be simple enough to convert that into a proper script that you can add in FormMaker as a custom calculation script.

To get the value of a field, use this command:

Code:
this.getField(“Qty2”).value

To update the value of the selected field, use:

Code:
event.value = …

So putting it all together, try the following as your custom calculation script:

Code:
event.value = this.getField(“Qty2”).value * 2.95;

Does that work?
