    Are you looking on assigning a calculation value to hamburgers, refresh, coffee etc..? If so, please check this guide https://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value on how you can assign values.

    Also, I would like to clarify your question about "How to repeat selected options in dropbox", are you referring to Dropbox.com integration or dropdown selection?

    Would you mind clarifying to us your concern? If you have a sample reference that you can share so we can check, please share it.

    Looking forward for your response.

    Hi Jed_C

    Thanks for your comment

    I do not need to calculate the value I just need to say the amount. I'll see the link if I find how to do it.

    I wanted to say drop-down list to choose in it several articles of the same type

     

    Thank you

    I would really like to apologize. However, I'm not sure I understand your concern correctly.

    Can you tell us what you would like your respondents to see on the form and what outcome would you like to have if someone submits it, please?

    We will wait for your response.

    I will try to explain myself better. Please, do not apologize. The fact is that I need to lend things and every time I lend I can lend one or several objects of the same type. How can I detail that 

    I have given in loan, for example, 2 blackboards, 5 markers, 3 maps, etc.? Now, if I have given in loan more than one object of the same type, I can only write the name of the objects but not the quantity.

    Because it is not the same to lend several objects and that they should only return one because there is no way to detail it.

    It is understood?


    I hope.

    Thanks you

    If you do not need calculations then you may instead use the Configurable List widget, this will allow you to display a drop down and allow the user's to type a quantity. 

    Here's a guide explaining how to implement that: https://www.jotform.com/help/282-How-to-Set-Up-the-Configurable-List-Widget 

    I hope this helps.
