    Hi, I experience again and again that in order for the form to work - for the numbers to be added up - I have to build the form from scratch every time I add a new item to the list. It's very frustrating. I would like to add "Panorama rear window - $1.200" to this form and not have to rebuild all the other items. How do I do that?

    Thanks.

    Best, Bjarne

    I checked your form and I can verify that the calculation is working correctly. Here's a screenshot:

    You just need to add another field for the "Panorama rear window - $1.200" option. After that, you need to add this field to the formula inside the Form Calculation widget.

    Hi Jan, thank you for your quick response. The reason why it works is because I have build it up from scratch again. I know that I have to add a new item the way you suggest, and I've done that, but then experienced that the whole form didn't work, only when I build it all up again from scratch, item for item. That is the problem I would like to find a solution for, because it's a very tedious work to do it all over every time a change is made to the form. Hope you can help. Thanks. Best, Bjarne O.

    You don't need to rebuild the whole form. Simply adding the new field and clicking the green save button will update your form.

    Just looking at form calculation widget. It isn't setup correctly. The comma separate function's end bracket should appear at the end of all the fields.

    For example (this is how it is currently setup):

    And this is how it should be setup:
