I'm trying to create basic calculations in a form that I am creating in LiveCycle Designer. Has anyone does this, and can you please give me some help? I don't understand the instructions in the Help feature or the book that I have.  Here is what I am trying to do:

Text Field A 100 (manual entry)

Text Field B 75   (manual entry)

Text Field C 25   (Result of calculation of A - B = C)

Then:

Text Field D 2    (manual entry)

Text Field E 50  (Result of calculation of C X D = E)

Okay, Paul, I have another question...  I'm not even sure that it is possible.

Do you know how to force a positive result?  Here is my example of what I am trying to say:

Value A: $1.00 minus Value B $1.10 equals -$0.10 (this comes out to a negative, but I need to just show it as a dollar amount not as a negative)

Not all situations will result in a negative number - so I need to always just show it as a dollar figure regardless of positive or negative.
