# An error with calculated field

Hi Everyone,

I am not sure if anyone have reported this. When creating a calculated field and save, the curly brackets get lost.
Add calculated field > count({id}) > save. Click on the calculated field three dots … > Edit calculated field. See issue

count({id}) changed to count(id)

this result on having this error message: Your calculated field expression contains invalid syntax. Correct syntax and try again.

any suggestions???

Hi @Sam_Shamsan , the system automatically convert the curly bracket, but it shouldn’t be the reason why your syntax is not correct. Can you provide a screenshot for your calculated field?
