This does not do everything I need, but I think it should work but does not:
[frm-condition source=frm-math content="[2874] - [2873]" less_than=0]"0"[/frm-condition]
2874 & 2873 are two number fields and the frm-condition shortcode is in another number field on the same form.  If I enter 2 numbers whose difference would be less than zero, nothing happens.  The field with the frm-condition shortcode is blank.  I have never been able to get this particular shortcode to work in any forms. -Jane

It seems the code format thing does not work. This is the code that should be in the grey box above:
[frm-condition source=frm-math content="[2874] - [2873]" less_than=0]"0"[/frm-condition]

Hi Jane The frm-condition shortcode only works in a view as far as i know so i don't think it will work in a form. If you need to have a conditional calculation in a form you can use something like this:
([15] > 500) ? ([15] * .02) : (10)
