    I want to create a form to enter budget expenses and total it up. I can't recall how to set up the calculation so that it adds up.

    I have created a form to enter living expenses in various categories. Categories include mortage, car payment, household expenses, insurance, etc.

    I want the form to automatically calculate the subtotals for each category, respectively, and the sumn total  all categories.

    The exercise is a step in making an IRS offer-in-compromise, which I do several times a month for clients who are delinquent in taxesl

    After reviewing from your previous posts, I think you were looking for the 'Purchase Order' field form the Payment tools.

    You can use this field to calculate totals.

    Hope this help. Please inform us if you still have further inquiry.
