Just try to do a simple math in adobe acrobat.

grandtotal field - paymenttotal field = total

100 - 1 = 99

I know there is calculate tab to allow us to sum the field but I don't know how to do minus in javascript. Please show me if you know how.

Thanks

You don't need JS for substraction.

Just select "Simplified field notation" and then use field names as operands (grandtotal -paymenttotal)

Here is a great article on calculated fields: http://acrobatusers.com/tutorials/print/how-to-do-not-so-simple-form-calculations
