    Taxi fare                    20€

    Extra services            15€

    I've checked your form and cloned it on my side.

    You are able to create the table that you've described in your thread adding a text field to your form. You should set the unique names of the calculation widgets in the text field such as {calculation} as you can see the screenshot below:


    So, when a user fulfills the form, the text field will appear on the form as you can see the screenshot below:

    You should calculate each of the items with the calculation widgets before showing them as a text.

    Please try and if you need further assistance, please let us know.

    Thanks in advance.
