I am trying to get WF to calculate few fields from a submitted Form. The fields that I want to calculates are not index fields in DW. Am I able to extract data from the submitted form and do a calculation in WF using variable fields? 

Does anyone know how to do this?

Many Thanks,

Hi Suresh,
you need to transfer the data from the form into a file cabinet field, then you can use this data in a workflow.
I hope this helps

Thanks Tobias. I guess my questions is if there is a way to capture that data without having to transfer it into a cabinet and onto fields. There is a lot of data that is going to be temporarily stored and I didn't think it would be very efficient to create that many fields within a cabinet. Looking for any other way to lift the data from the form to run a calculation.

Hello Suresh, 

no, there is currently no way to do the calculations in the form itself.
If you need data transferred to a Workflow, the only way is to write the data to IndexFields and retrieve it inside the workflow like Tobias said.
