    I’ve been trying for ages to simply multiply two input fields – thought it would be simple (but not for me it seems)!

    I’ve tried following two sets of instructions found on your site (below) and still not managed this.

    <span style=”color: #000000; font-family: ‘Arial’,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;”>1. add input field A (variable A)</span>
    <span style=”color: #000000; font-family: ‘Arial’,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;”>2. add input field B (variable B)</span>
    <span style=”color: #000000; font-family: ‘Arial’,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;”>3. add text field named “Result-Text”</span>
    <span style=”color: #000000; font-family: ‘Arial’,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;”>4. add variable named “Result”</span>
    <span style=”color: #000000; font-family: ‘Arial’,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;”>5. add button called “Plus” with two actions:</span>
    <span style=”color: #000000; font-family: ‘Arial’,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;”>5.1. set variable “Result” to VAR(A) + VAR(B)</span>
    <span style=”color: #000000; font-family: ‘Arial’,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;”>5.2. change content of “Result-Text” to variable “Result”</span>
    <span style=”color: #000000; font-family: ‘Arial’,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;”>6. repeat step 5 for subtraction, division, multiplication or any other math action

    </span>

    <span style=”color: #000000; font-family: ‘Arial’,sans-serif; font-size: 16px;”>1.</span>
    On: Click
    Action: Modify variable
    Target: results
    Type: Set equal to
    Value: VAR(Entry_0001) (Insert the correct name of the variable associated with the first entry field)

    <span style="color: #000000; font-family: 'Arial',sans-serif; font-size: 16px;">2.</span>
    On: Click
    Action: Modify variable
    Target: results
    Type: Multiply Variable by
    Value: VAR(Entry_0002)
    
    <span style="color: #000000; font-family: 'Arial',sans-serif; font-size: 16px;">3.</span>
    On: Click
    Action: Change contents
    Target: Results Tex Block
    Value: results
    <span style="color: #000000; font-family: 'Arial',sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Can any spell this out in very simple steps it's beginning to drive me mad.
    
    Thanks
