Adding Numerous Fields

Postby royaltiger » Tue Sep 04, 2018 11:30 am

Is there a correct way of adding together 7 fields in the calculated field, I've noticed that the calculated field I think only allows 5 or possibly 6 calculations by doing F1+F2+F3+F4+F5 ect, so what I am doing is splitting the calculation into 3 calculated fields F1+F2+F3+F4 = Field8, F5+F6+F7 = Field9, then Field 10 = F8+F9. Is this correct as it seems longwinded and incorrect and something tells me a more experienced user will have a correct solution

There is a way to shorten that up just a little

F1+F2+F3+F4+F5 = F8

F6+F7+F8 = F9

You get the same result, but use one less field and calculation
Have a good day
