    I still can't get the calculations to work on my form. I've rebuilt it a few times. All values are set to 'numeric' on all of the fields. Everything that is a number is entered as a number. I don't understand why it doesn't work. PLEASE. I've spent so much time doing it incorrectly. Help me identify the error so I can make it work.

    I'm trying to multiply whatever value is entered in the item box by the price of the item and total it at the bottom. I don't understand why it won't calculate.

    I believe you are referring to the last two calculations fields, because the first one sums correctly all the entered values:

    It is not working because it is a long calculation, in which you are multiplying each entered value by a certain value. Please add a Form Calculation field per each calculation:

    And, sum all this calculation fields into a "Total" calculation field, instead of performing all the calculation into one field.

    Let us know if you need more help.
