I am trying to calcalate the value of several textinput boxes which are contained within a gallery that is on another screen to where I want the figure to show. I have been trying to get a formula to work for days but to no avail. I shall be most grateful if anyone can provide any assistance as at the moment, I can only get the most recent entry to pull through onto my screen, not all of the textinput values.
Thanking you in advance.

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?
How do you calculate the value of several TextInput boxes? Could you please share a bit more about the formula?
If you want to display the calculated result within another screen, I think the Global variable could achieve your needs. You could consider take a try to store the calculated result into a global variable (using Set() function), then display the variable value within your another screen.
Please take a try with the following formula:
Set(Variable1, CalculatedResult1); Set(Variable2, CalculatedResult2);
then you could display the calculated result via the Variable1, Variable2, ... within your another screen.
More details about the Set function, please check the following article:
Note: You could not use UpdateContext() function to initialize your variable, context variables are scoped to a screen, which means that you can't build a formula that refers to a context variable on another screen.
I think that @Mike8 raises an excellent question, and the answer to that would be of great help to us.
What Mike is asking is - do you want to calculate a value from textinput boxes within a *single* record? Or do you want to perform some sort of an aggregate calculation? (in other words, do you want to calculate a value from *multiple* records in your gallery?)
