  • You can write a simple javascript to add two fields and put their sum in total field.

    var field1 = Xrm.Page.getAttribute("field1").getValue();
    var field2 = Xrm.Page.getAttribute("field2").getValue();
    var sum = field1 + field2

    You can call this function on change of field1 and field2.

    You don't need to write fetchxml to get values from same entity.

    However this is client side code so it will run when you open and change the record so old records will not be updated.

  • Yes, This is possible with  Simple Javascript if you are working on Single Record.

    Saad ^^ pretty much explained it.

    Although, if you need to update the older records with total value, then you must use plugin i guess.
