    calculation not working still

    Asked by MEM2017 on March 31, 2017 at 04:12 PM



    I removed the last plus operator ourt of the calculation condition but it's still not totalling when a name is entered in the banquet tickets table....what is wrong with how I have set it up?


    Also, how do I get the paypal integration to work at the bottom of the form?  Do I have to import a button from paypal?  I want it to take the calculation of total due: and then transfer them to paypal page to finish registration/payment.

    The assign value option only works with checkbox field type inside the matrix, example. 

    What would recommend you is using the Dynamic Textbox widget, which you can enable the row count to update it in your calculation widget:

    Then update the formula within the calculation widget:
