Calculated Fields Form
[resolved] Newbie that needs help (3 posts)

    Sorry a real newb here with no code experience but would appreciate some help with this plugin.

    There are 3 fields (<%fieldname1%> <%fieldname2%> <%fieldname3%>) for a user to input numbers, these numbers are multiplied together then the user will choose an option from a drop down list.

    Option A (poor insulation) will divide the total by 10

    Option B (average insulation) will divide the total by 15

    Option C ( well insulated) will divide the total by 25

    So far in the calculated field i have

    (fieldname1)*(fieldname2)*(fieldname3)

    This gives me the total for the first 3 fields and to divide that number i put this

    (fieldname1)*(fieldname2)*(fieldname3)/10

    But how do i divide the total by the option the user selects?

    Hi,

    Suppose that the drop down list is the fieldname4, so your equation is as simple as divide the total by the fieldname4:

    fieldname1*fieldname2*fieldname3/fieldname4

    Ok but to get that to work i have to put the numbers in the options the user selects but i don't want the user to see the numbers. Example; Option A (poor insulation) will divide the total by 10 but i want the user to see 'poor insulation' and not the number does that make sense?
