    Javascript Sum

    msmitty52@hotmail.com Level 1



      I need to have a field in a form that sums the data entered by the user in 5 other fields, and one defined field.  It's super easy to do in Acrobat 9.0, but I need to create the form in LiveCycle and the JavaScript wont transfer from Acrobat to Livecycle.  Here is what I have and it isn't working:


      AFSimple_Calculate("SUM", new Array ("LineCalc1", "LineCalc2", "LineCalc3", "LineCalc4", "LineCalc5", "StudentLoan"));


      A separate field needs to subtract the value from that calculation from 30,400:


      event.value = ( 30400 -
          this.getField("Total_Proposed_Payment_Toward_Tuition_Room_and_Board").value )


      I am a complete beginner at JavaScript.  I have tried to figure this out, but I really just don't know where to go! Please help! Thank you.
