    Calculating a field in Acrobat for use in Reader

    Thomas Porter MD

      I am creating a form that will, in part, calculate the body mass index.  I have created fields for the weight and height and am trying to write a simple calculation for the following equation: BMI = weight / height (squared).


      I have completed this all in Acrobat and it seems to work OK but when the form is converted for rights in Adobe Reader, the calculation fails to occur.


      I know nothing about JavaScript so I have tried to apply the simplified calculation but this is becoming very frustrating.


      Does anyone have any suggestions?
