    Fields won't stay selected when trying to calculate.

    sagregga

      I'm sure I'm making some basic mistake as I am new to acrobat (using XI).  I am simply trying to do some very simple calculations.  I want to add about 4 fields together for a total and then multiply that total by a fixed number.

      I went into form editing, brought up the properties dialog for the field where I wanted the total to go, clicked on calculate, selected "the value is...sum +" button,  pressed pick, a list of all the fields came up, I selected fields I wanted totaled, hit ok..........no fields actually appear in the box below the "value is" button.

       

      I tried the "simplified field notation".  same thing...what I typed didn't show up after hitting ok.

       

      HELP!!!!!!

      Thanks in advance.
