    Scripting calculations for subtotal and taxes = grandtotal

    linux.program Level 1

      I have a work form that lists cost of work preformed. 4 amount fields, a subtotal field, tax, and grand total. I am having an issue collaborating the subtotal, taxes and grandtotal. I have googled everywhere just for basic FormCalc help but to no avail. Any help you can give me will be very much appreciated.

       

      this is the script I foolishly 'thought' would work.

       

      Subtotal - Sum(AMOUNT, AMOUNT, AMOUNT, AMOUNT)

       

      Tax - Sum(TOTAL * .0825)

       

      Grandtotal - SUM(TOTAL, TAX)

       

      I have ran the syntax check on all fields no errors, but I get some extremely weird output when integers are place in the amount fields.

       

      layout --------------

       

      amount

      amount

      amount

      amount

      subtotal

      taxes

      grand total

       

      they are all numeric fields (i don't know if all this is relevant but I'm trying to make this as easy as possible for you to troubleshoot)

       

      thanks in advance
