Hello, Yes we all know FF truly formidable:) but can someone tell me that FF can solve equations like what Calculated Fields Form does? for example: =PV(rate, nper, pmt, [fv], [type]) =FV (rate, nper, pmt, [pv], [type]) PMT(rate, nper, pv, [fv], [type])   etc..   Thank you Regards,

It can. This is an example of an interactive ChartJS bar chart that calculates FV from Formidable data. To create these calculations you need to use jQuery or PHP versions of the formulas. This example uses a custom jQuery FV calculation that I wrote for a client.

hmmm I see... but it requires programming skills, mean's not easy to implement for people who don't have coding skills like me 🙂

Advanced calculations always require some level of custom programming. Form tools are not spreadsheets that have this functionality built in, neither is WordPress. How you program code depends on where you plan to execute it. If it executes on the server, you write the code in PHP. If you want the calculations in the browser, you use jQuery. There are plenty of examples on the web.
