# How to set a max charge in the total calculation field.

**sstte18**Hi. how do I make it so that the maximum charge / family is $54. So, the total for the # of parents, # of kids does not exceed $54. # of grandparents is IN ADDITION to whatever the total is.

**BDAVID**I just cloned your form, and I do not see any other calculation than "Your credit card total". Do you want to make the max charge $54 regards less of the # of parents and kids they enter?

**sstte18**there is a calculation for your check total as well. yes, the max is $54 regardless of # of parents/kids. the total goes over $54 if there are 2 parents and 3 kids. HOWEVER, if they enter additional adults (i.e. grandparents), then the total CAN go over $54.

**BDAVID**Please try this then:

1) Hide the "

**Your Credit Card Total**" and "**Your Check Total**": https://www.jotform.com/help/434-How-to-Hide-Form-FieldsNote: you don't need the "Your check tota".

2) Then you can remove the "

**# of other Adults (including grandparents) @$18pp**" field from their calculation:3) Add a new Form Calculation widget to perform the "

**Grandparents**" calculation separately: https://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-Perform-Form-Calculation-Using-a-Widget4) And add a new

**Form Calculation**widget to obtain the "New total", to obtain the "Parents-kids total"5) Create two conditions:

1- To input the value from the hidden "

**Your Credit Card Total**" into this "**New total**" field(which I labeled as "parents kids total"), if "**Your Credit Card Total**" is less than $55. Example:2- To input $54 into the "

**New total**" if "**Your Credit Card Total**" is greater than $54. Example:6) Now add the last Form Calculation widget, which you can label as "Final total" or similar, to add up the "Parent Kids Total" + "Grandparents Total".

**sstte18**thank you for this. I am unable to clone the form. it says I do not have permission. Can you enable that. I would prefer to work with the form as you have it though you deleted some of my show/hide conditions which I think I can add back on my own once you allow me to clone. thx!

**Victoria_K**Can you please try to clone this one?

I have an option "Allow other users to clone forms" enabled, so it should work now.

Let us know if you need more help.

**sstte18**it worked. i'll be in touch if I have more questions. thx!

**sstte18**this is still not working. Here is a link to the new form...I need TWO options - credit and check. You had deleted the check option in your cloned form. I tried adding it back and when I select pay by check - and 2 parents, 2 kids, I am getting 2 for my Family check total. It should be $54. If I have 2 parents, 1 kid, total should be $46. What did I do wrong?

Then with the credit card option, it's not calculating the 3%

**EltonCris**It should be fixed now.

Some fields in your calculation formula are in text format (A-Z), this can't be used in the calculation since it outputs the value as a text string. It should be 0-9 which means for calculation.

**sstte18**it works. I'm just wondering how that field got converted to A-Z when it's a numeric field and I just auto populated by selecting it from the dropdown??

**EltonCris**Any fields can be converted into A-Z despite the field type.

You might have inadvertently switch the states when you add the field.
