Calculation Limitations

Im a new user. So forgive me for asking something that may be a simple question.

Im creating a means by which students in my youth group can have an account where when they sign up for events (via a checkbox) the account balance is updated with the cost for the event.

So if a student signs up for Camp (checkbox) then the account balance is $250 (price of camp)

Then we have about 8 events throughout the year. Can one calculation handle those 8 events?

I seem to have it figured out for one or two events (((Camp*225)+(Missions Trip*500)+(Lock-in*50)))

But when i go beyond that it tells me Error all available operators are used up.

Help!

Hi,

You can use up to six per calculation. What you'll want to do first is break your calculation into a couple of smaller ones, each using a different calculated field. Then use the results of those in a final calculated field.

Hope this helps!

Do you have ETA on adding more operands in the calculation field?

Hi Veritas,

Thanks for writing. No changes to the operand limit are planned at this time. We'll consider it for the future, though.
