    How do I set up a survey question so that the user enters a percentage distribution to two choices? Example:

    Enter the appropriate distribution of the funds received?

    __ Daily use

    __ Saved for the future

    I inspected the form you provide and I found only "Daily use" field. I noticed that you set the maximum value to 100.

    I did not find "Saved for the future" field. Do you want to calculate "Saved for the future" percentage based on the percentage that is entered inside of the "Daily use" field?

    If so, you can set a basic calculation inside of your form and calculate "Saved for the future" percentage.

    If I did not understand your question correctly, please explain in more details what are you trying to achieve.

    I want users to enter a percentage number for each of the two choices. It would look like this:
    62 Daily use
    38 saved for the future
    Where the user would enter the numbers.
    Not sure if the software will monitor to ensure that they total 100 but it’s not critical.

    Just to clarify, where would the Daily use and Saved for the future value would calculate the percentage? Would their be a field total that those fields will be basing from the calculation? Or the numbers would just simply be the numbers that the users inputted which will represent as the percentage?

    I don't see any calculation widget in your form so I'm not sure if you want to calculate the percentage from a certain Total field. If you only need to have a field that allows your users to input a value, you can just use the "Short" text entry field and set the validation into "Numeric".
