    Percentage Calculation


      Hi, I need help creating a calculation field that would find the percentage of values obtained from radio button groups in acrobat 9.0.

      I basically have ten radio button groups (ODIO1, ODIO2, ODIO3, ODIO4, ODIO5, ODIO6, ODIO7. ODIO8, ODIO9, ODI10).  They

      each have six radio buttons/chocies that correspond to button values of 0,1,2,3,4, and 5.


      I essentially need a calculation field that would display the percentage of the groups with the equation = (SUM(ODI01 - ODI10)/50) * 100%.

      This would give me a value from 0-100%.


      I have little experience in using Javascript, so any help in creating a Javascript to use this equation is greatly appreciated.


      Thank You!

          If you're using a percentage field the result needs to be a number between 0 and 1, not 100...

          Anyway, this code replicates your formula:


          var total = 0;

          for (var i=1; i<=10; i++)

              total += +(this.getField("ODIO")+i).value;

          event.value = (total/50) * 100;

            Thanks for the feedback.


            I understand what you mean with getting a formula with a value between 0 and 1.  How would I need to change the formula to do this?

            Also how can i factor into the "total" line the sum of the total value of all the radio buttons groups?
