I am a fairly new Adobe 9/Livecycle user. I was SO HAPPY when I got FormCalc to work and successfully calculate totals on my first page, however, when I got to page 2 and tried my first formula to get subtotal, I got the following message:

script failed (language is formcal;context is xfa(o).form(topmostsubform(o)page2( = sum(subtotalllc+subtotallp)error;accessor "subtotalllc is unknown".

I went back in, checked everything, deleted and re-did text field and nothing works. Any help out there?

it just means that the field you referenced (subtotalalllc) cannot be found there a typo in the field name? Field names are case sensative as well.

Also try capitalizing the "S" in the Sum() function.

Not fixed. I am perplexed.

I went back in and re-checked all spelling, including caps, even copy/pasted formulas that worked...wouldn't work....then re-typed all from scratch. They all work UNTIL I get to the first Form Calc on page my second page. Almost like Form Calc is not recognizing any script/formulas from the first page. Any other fix its out there?

Send the form to and I will have a look.

Sending now. Might be a total mess. I am a neophyte at Livecycle and now obsessed w/ figuring out this program.

I am now pretty certain I don't have formula right to pick up from any subtotals and/or calc's from previous page. Thanks again.

Are the forumlas on your 2nd page referencing fields on the first page, that's most likely the problem then. If so, and your first page is called 'page1', then you'll need to reference that in your formula such as
