So I have put together an order form in acrobat. The user enters a quantity for each item and the item subtotal and combined total costs are calculated. The problem - upon opening the PDF and entering the first quantity, the item subtotal updates but the combined total remains zero. Once any other field is changed, or if the first field is changed a second time, the combined total updates. Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance for the help. the form can be downloaded here - http://www.vermontel.com/~knsh/beta/knsh_order_form.pdf
It's a problem with the field calculation order.
(In Acrobat X) Go to Form Edit mode, and then click Other Tasks - Edit
Fields - Set Field Calculation Order...
Change the order so that subtotal is above total.
That seems to have done the trick. Thank you.
