Hi,  I am running into issue when trying to calculate the Exchange Rate in a repeater field. See the attached file for details. What am I missing? Thank you!

From the attachment, it's clear that it's multiplying the .01 by the Total Funds Received, so likely you're simply using the incorrect field id.

Thank you, Rob, for your input. I will try to explain my issue some more because it is not doing what I would expect it to do. I am probably just missing some setting... ??? The default value for field [87] is the value of field [34]. That works find to update all the rows. The default value for field [35] is set to be field [33]*[87]. This partially works. When I enter new lines it works but if I want to change the Exchange Rate in field [34] after the lines are created, it only changes the calculated value for the first line... not for subsequent lines. See the attached file for a screenshot showing my fields.

I was able to reproduce your issue and I can't imagine it's anything other than a bug. I suggest contacting Formidable Support, aka "Strategy 11".

I have similar issues. It seems that when the Repeater has to grab from outside of itself, it is troublesome. Mine keeps changing the quantities, each time I add a new Repeat. It fails to go back to outside the Repeater to calculate.
