Hi ale, thanks for replying. I have attached the two file links:
The problem area is the table on page 5 - DESIGN SPECIFICATION PROJECT
SUMMARY. I have highlighted the problem field with a red arrow (column
"Difference from Budget"). This is a summary table where I would like to
sum all the relevant fields (marked with red arrows in the document), to
give an overview of the project budget.
In the pdf file, I have populated some calculation fields on page 6, as an
example. The total value in the Difference from Budget column on page 5,
should be "2" and not "0". I cannot work out why it isn't calculating
Any suggestion would be appreciated.

can you please upload somewhere (google drive?) a sample .sla and .pdf file
that shows the problem?
