Your task is to replicate this form.

  1. Create a simple eForm named ‘Calculator – <<Your Name>>
  2. Create three fields [Alpha], [Beta] and [Result]. Each should be a number.
  3. Add in a formula to calculate the result.
    To do this:

    • Select the [Result] field.
    • In the Data section of the Properties Panel: Click the edit button.
    • Find the textbox labelled ‘Formula’.
  4. Enter your formula. Remember that you are trying to add [Alpha] to [Beta]. Calculations in Nimblex are similar to Excel. In Excel to add two values together you might write: A1 + B1
