    Hi I have a form that has numerous number input fields adjoined by a multiplication equation. At the end of the form, it adds the result of each multiplication. However, the resultant total is way off and outta whack. I've triple checked everything and even zero'd out the fields and the total still comes back at like 450. Any ideas why this is not working?

    I have inspected the formula of the calculation widgets and tested the form. However, I wasn't able to replicate the issue. I received the correct result in the Total field.

    You can try unhiding the form calculations then see on preview if it generates the correct results. Then add all of them and see if it will match the value inside the Total field.

    Ya sorry, I figured it out shortly after I sent this. I had used the
    multiply key from my keyboard and didn't pull it from the widgets
    calculator. Works fine now.
    On another note, I'm linking this up with
    zapier and id like to upload a pdf of the submitted forms to another
    platform. However, right now it only shows up as content in the body of the
    email. is it possible to get this as pdf format somehow?
