    1.  Is there a setting that allows commas to be added automatically 

    2.  Is there a setting that adds the USD symbol (currency) to the number entered otr totaled?

    I inspected your form and I saw that you are using a Number field. Unfortunately, that is not possible to achieve with a Number field 

    It can be done with the Masked Input widget. 

    Another way is to use the Form Calculation widget and get the value from a Number field. You can add dollar sign inform of the calculation and use commaSeparate() math function.

    Thank you for your kind assistance. I am not quite there yet but making progress, it seems you are telling me to use the masked input in lieu of the number and the form calculator for the summary .
    again thanks

    Hello Thomas,

    The initial suggestion that BJoanna had in mind was the masked input widget.

    She suggests a second option by using the form calculation widget. I would also go for this method, since I find this more versatile.

    In any case, feel free to let us know if you have questions or if you need assistance.
