Hi friends,

I have two textboxes in my form.  I would like to be able to type in a math expression in box 1 and when I tab out of that box, I would like the result to show in box 2.  For example, if I type "9 - 5" in box 1 and tab out, I would like "4" to show up in box 2.  Is the code for this really hard?  Would somebody kindly share it with us?  

Thanks, friends.
