    Here's a guide on how to perform calculation on the matrix field.


    And here's a video guide (no audio) I've created for you so you'll understand it better.


    Basically, you will have to add the fields in the calculation wizard so you can add them.

    And then pass the calculation field to the payment field by following this guide http://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field

    Here's my cloned form with these changes: https://form.jotformpro.com/71921168351960

    On this form, I added 3 form calculations. First for the first table, then the 2nd for the second table and the 3rd for the grand total.

    Feel free to clone this form so you can view it on your account and make adjustments if necessary.

    Let us know should you need further help.
