    I'm in the same boat, and would also like some help.

    It all make sense until we get to actually show the final price field - do we need to put a text field in separately ?

    My form: https://form.jotformeu.com/73175281685363

    The form you mentioned https://www.jotform.com/73175281685363 doesn't have any prices though. It's just a simple form with dropdowns, a radio button and some textboxes.

    The topic on the thread where you posted this comment is about displaying the price field as shown on the demo form given on this guide.

    Please get back to us with a bit more info and a clearer description of what you're trying to do so we can better assist you.

    I try and copy what is described on the demo but the price field does not appear, so my confusion is based on that. I have inserted prices in the calculation values table in 'Options'.

    I feel the demo is not painting the full picture but I'm obviously missing something but what?

    What you're missing is the field you're attempting to show. The demo form was meant to display a calculated price based from assigned calculation values.

    Just add the FORM CALCULATION WIDGET to your form > click the WAND icon > then the ADD FIELD button > select the PRE-ORDER BLURAY field > then click SAVE.

    This should automatically display the assigned calculation values for each of the options on that Pre-order BluRay dropdown.

    Ah! That helped, thanks. One more if you don't mind; How to display currency? I've filled in GBP in the calculation values as per demo but only the calculation shows - no £ sign.

    To add currency in the Form Calculation Widget, you can simple paste the £ sign inside the widget.

    This happens because you don't have a PLUS (+) sign in between the two. I'm assuming your formula was supposed to be:

    pre-order bluray value + pre-order dvd value

    The formula on your screenshot doesn't have an operator (plus sign) though. So, just insert a plus sign in between the two fields and that should fix it.
