Hello guys
I've a question that is calculating previous fields with EM and result is ok, i can see the calculation value

i need to use this calculation value somewhere else in the survey, how i can use this equation number in another equation or to use later to caculate again with another question?

I've tried using {QID90.shown} and {QID90} nothing worked, gives undefined variable and can't be used

any idea?

Assuming it is an equation type question, you should just be able to use the code (NOT the ID).

Something like:
{equation1}

ok that helps, but what i have more than one sum inside this question? like this:

Children: (equation)
and babies: (another equation)

then how to use those 2 numbers?

Hmmm can i put each one alone in a hidden question then calculate in a new equation? will try that
