    If I understand correctly, what you were after is similar to the custom payment form described on our user guide: Setting up a Custom Recurring Donation Form

    You will need to enable the Variable Price option before you can assign a calculation value to a payment field (Get Price From)

    Ex:


    I hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    What I want to do is apply a text value as defined earlier on my form (a result from a drop down box) not a number value to your Payment Systems, Name field shown above.  I have 3 homes of children (home 1, home 2, home 3) which we offer sponsorships.  I currently do this with 3 forms, 1 for each home.  My desire is to use 1 form and once the user selects a Home Name early on the form, I can apply it to this subscription field. Example: Babies Home Sponsorship - $30.

    Thank you for explaining further and providing more details. 

    Unfortunately what you wanted to do is not possible for the Payment field. You cannot dynamically alter the Subscriptions/Items Name in the payment field using calculation or conditions.

    When using the payment field (PayPal), you can only create the subscriptions/items with fixed names when adding them in payment settings. 

    Let us know if this is not what the issue was about.

    Thanks.
