I have Adobe Professional 8.  I am making a form.  I need to add the sum of a couple text fields and have it output in a third text field.  

Its sort of like the SUM feature in Excel.  Can I do this in Adobe Pro?

Hi

Yes. Simply create the 3 fields and make sure they are Number format. In the 3rd field open the properties dialog (rightclick) and go to the calculate tab.

Use the 'Value is..' dropdown to select 'sum(+)' option and pick your fields.
