variable query

I'm sure this has an easy answer, but somehow my mind blanks when working with variables.

I want users to type in a rating for their skill level--so the question would be, How do you rank your skill in this area? And they'd type their answer into the box. Then I want the text to come up--If you're a "their answer", what would it take to be "their answer +1".

Every time I try, I can get their rating to change, but it also changes in the first box.

Let me know if I need to clarify this! Thanks for your help in advance,

Hi Frances,

Without seeing it, I imagine you're referencing the same variable in each text box? I would suggest that the second text box is adjusted to the value of the first text box and then, you'd also add the trigger to adjust variable by +1 based on when the timeline starts or control loses focus.

Here is a really simple file just so that you could see how I set the triggers up.

Hope that helps!
