Hello!

I am working on a calculation to just multiple an integer field by 1000. 

 

{total_flow2} *1000

this is what I have but of course I get an error. And I have tried it other ways too and just wanting to know how to do this. Please help! Thank you!

You need the dollar sign in front of the curly brackets

${total_flow2} * 1000

Awesome thank you! I did notice I have to create another field for the calculation to run as well. So total_flow2 is whatever integer is placed in the box. Then I created a calculation total flow area with the calculation. It would not run in the total_flow2 calculation box.

Yup, exactly! The calculation returns a result which populates that field, but it can't reference itself, so the output is a different field/question.
