    Please see form:
    https://form.jotform.ca/70696749197274
    I have an InputTable with dropdowns and an InputTable with textboxes.
    Question 1: How can I merge the 2 InputTable into 1 InputTable (8 rows with
    dropdowns and last two rows with textboxes)?
    Question 2: The dropdown menus contain hours options for a timesheet. How
    can the hours between START and END be calculated eg. START 6:30 AM, END
    1:15 PM, and added with hours from the next two rows START 9:30 AM, END
    2:45 PM ?
    Question 3: I inserted an HTML table with the help of the Text element, but
    can not figure how to add elements to it.

    1. You cannot have two types of input boxes in the Input Table field. A workaround would be to keep them below each other and align it, make them close with custom CSS codes.

    2. To calculate the hours, you need to assign calculation values in the dropdown options of the Input Table field.

    3. It's a static text. Unfortunately, you cannot have this as an input box. You can add the value in the HTML codes, but you will receive it as static/plain text.

    The example shows how to insert values for radio buttons that are available in a table with 4 columns and 1 value in each cell.

    4,3,2,1 (4 columns, 4 values, each cell 1 value)

     

    I have a table with (5 columns, each cell has 24 values).

    Dropdown menus with 24 values for each cell in the table.

    What would be the format for entering all these values. (5,4,3,2,1 - not possible)

    You can only have one input type per Input Table, however, you can take and arrange the structures of the HTML codes of your form to achieve what you want.

    Here's how to download your form source code http://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-Download-a-Source-Code-of-your-Form 

    When you edit your form source code, please do not delete or rename the name of the field, otherwise, it won't be able to capture the value on submission.

    If you have further questions, let us know.
