should add, I can get the cal sum (+) to work. I have format to number selected. just cannot get the (-) figured out yet
Do you mean that you want the value of field C to be B-A ?
If so, go to the field's Properties, Calculation tab, Simple Notation
Script, and enter:
A - B
Cannot believe I did not try that! I kept putting the = in the add "" around everything. gg
How about if I add as custom script, same way?
If I wanted E=((A+B)*C)/D enter it the same way?
thanks for you help..

How can a field contain its own value in its calculation formula?
Edit: I see you edited your post.
yes, I first type in D....
This much simpler then I first thought. I need to find some resources to learn how to use acrobat 9 pro. I find myself using this program quite a bit, very nice software.
