How can I accept a Currency Formatted input and then do math on it?
Qualtrics requires inputs to be numeric-only - not allowing "$" or "," (it accepts decimals). And a lot of times we want to accept inputs that are currency. Respondents want to see the $ and the "," between 1 and all those zeroes. But Qualtrics can't do mathematical calculations on those type of data.
Best case scenario would be to have the $ auto show up as the person types in the amount, and appropriate commas also auto entry...basically using a Currency Format. BUT then allow mathematical operations on it. Happy to have a way to create an Embedded Data variable that holds only the numerical representation and use that for the math.
