Field calculations

Hi All

After entirely to many hours of research trying to get a reference location
for scripting simple field calculations, and also testing scripts I need
some veteran help.

I am a database developer so I am new to LiveCode. I used the dictionary
trying to do the following but the Hypertalk script approach is not clear.

I simply want to take one field and use a math operator to say add two
fields together and put the result into a third field.

Example: Loan amount + loan fees = Sum amount of loan

I might want to add 3 fields together and then subtract a different field
from the sum of the 3 fields.

Or take a loan percentage * the Loan amount to get the amount of interest

Thank you

Vaughn Clement
