This script was my first attempt at making a calculator for a specific purpose. It is supposed to allow a person to enter number of employees, hourly pay rate, profit margin and number of hours worked per week. It will not accept a decimal point, so if anyone here can correct the code for me, I'd really appreciate it. It's okay if it has to have a button to calculate the total, as long as the hourly rate field and the profit percentage field and be altered. Also, if possible, could the markup percentage field be entered as a number like 3o for 30%, or is my solution of 0.3 the only way to go? Code: ``` Calculator
Number of Employees
*
Hourly Rate
*
Markup Percentage
*
Hours Per Week
=
```

Please do not start a second thread on the same subject. You have already had an answer in the first thread. I don't see why you have a problem with a decimal point, but there are so many errors that the code will not work at all. You can enter a markup percentage as 30 and then divide that by 100 to get .3, add 1 to get 1.3 which you then multiply the first price by to get the uplifted price. Naturally you will need to check that the user does not enter .3 in the field! __________________ All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
