    Hi,

    Can you please provide us more details about your inquiry? 

    I checked the latest form (AGO and ROM Bus Trips Registration Form) you had edited, and it seems there are number fields to corresonding dates.

    Could it be you wanted to get "total" number on the textbox fields?

    Please update us.

    Thanks.

    I don't recall making an inquiry. I was searching for help in the help
    section but thanks for the email.
    I was trying to make 4 boxes that let you choose how many tickets you want
    based on type and price. I figured that much out. But I wanted the
    program to then take those numbers and tally them to give a grand total for
    their submission.
    Box 1, 3, Adult Tickets = they enter: number of tickets - I want that
    number multiplied by $45
    Box 2, 4, Youth Tickets = they enter: number of tickets - I want that
    number multiplied by $35
    After the multiplication I want the grand total of all boxes/formula added
    up in an additional box. Or even in a receipt email to the client.
    I wasn't trying to collect money. Only bill them.
    This looks complicated here but it's all simple math on paper. Is there a
    tool I should be using or perhaps a better way to arrange in on the form?
    Maybe in a spreadsheet style?

    Hi,

    What you needed to achieve on the form would require using the form's source code embed.

    As it is now, the form do not have the feature to compute or total values between 2 fields except those that are in the payment fields (paypal, purchase order.. so on). But the customization of the payments fields are restricted, so you cannot use your input box then compute total fields.

    But if you use the form's source code, you can inject custom functions that can compute total value of fields and use the modified form's source code to embed the form in your website.

    If OK with you to use the form source code, and you have your own website where the form can be used, I can assist you to come up with such form.

    Please update us.

    Thanks.
