Hi,

I am trying to use simplified field notation to calculate a total from quantity and price on each line
I tried delivered\.0*price\.0 which works on a single cell.  When I tried to place multiple fields for 30 rows in a column, the 0 element was used for all.  Is there a way to specific the current row, like in an excel spreadsheet?

Thanks

Murray

Is this for a Designer or an AcroForm form?

Do you have a unique name for each field?
i.e. On row 1, deliever1 and price1
Otherwise, it will put the same data in every field with a non-unique name.

This still does not answer my question: AcroForm or Designer form?

Create a document level script named "calculateRow" and use the attached script for that.

Then edit the field properties for all your amt.X field and set a custom calculation script. Use the following line for that script:

event.value = calculateRow(event.target);

The calculateRow() script will figure out which row needs to be calculated and then assign the calculated value to the field.
function calculateRow(field)
{
    retVal = 0;
    // get the field name
    var name = field.name;

    var reg = /(.*)\.(\d+)/;
    var ar = reg.exec(name);
    if (ar != null)
    {
        var rowNum = ar[2];

        retVal = this.getField("delivered." + rowNum).value * this.getField("price." + rowNum).value;
    }

    return retVal;
}
