    How do I calculate the Amount when someone enters under the QTY.

     

    I want sell an item that is $4.00, So when they enter how many they want under the QTY tab I would like the corresponding amount to show up under my total for quantity and total for balance.

    So, Qty is 1 = $4.00   OR  Qty 2 = $8.00.  I added a screen shot of my form.  

     

    Thank you!

    You are using the Matrix table field in your form calculation. It has a different approached than the form calculation using individual input field.

    I suggest you review these user guides:

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Yes, Johnathan.  That's exactly what I want.  Thank you!!! I already saw the videos of the other reply.  Thank you thank you!  One more question....Is there a way to put it in as a dollar amount in the amount section?

    the demo didn't work for me like your screen shot.

    Can someone actually type in 1 for the quantity and the amount automatically say $4.00?  I think my form already does that

    I made a revision since I noticed that the amount can be fixed to $4.00 only.

    Here is the other demo form https://form.jotformpro.com/71349009431957

    You can prefix the currency sign before the formula

    I suggest you clone this form https://form.jotformpro.com/71349009431957  so that you can better review how it was created on your Form Builder.
