    PLEASE HELP: PDF Forms, creating average formula for text?




      I really hope somone can help. I cannot find any answers to my questions on the internet, google etc.


      First time using Acrobat. Im pretty quick learning on compters however the formulas my boss has asked me to do I have no idea if they are possible.


      We have a report form for exams and each section I need to calculate the average mark for that section.


      There are 3 questions for the first section. There are dropdowns for distinction, Merit, Pass and Below pass to select for each questions.



      Please see picture attached to show you what I mean.


      I want to be able to calculate the most selected/average dropdowns selected and not count the N/A's into award1 field?


      The fields must be text and cannot be numbers.


      so for example, track 1 got a distinction, track 2 got a Merit, Track 3 got a distiction. all other fields left n/a
