    Need help with easy calculation

    Asked by goteamsfoursquare on April 18, 2013 at 11:01 AM

    http://form.jotform.us/form/31026554755151

    Hello, 

    On the above form, on the 3rd page (or section) of the form, I have a "Purchase Order" section where I added 2 products. After the user selects the options needed, it shows the total at the bottom of that section.

     

    I then created a "Free Text (html)" section below that. What I need to do in that section is take the "Total" dollar amount from the above section and multiply it by the "Total Number on Team" field which is a simple numeric field toward the top of the form. I just need to display the of these 2 multiplied together.

     

    Can someone help me determine how I can accomplish this? I don't need it connected to a payment form or anyting - just need to display that total right there in the that Free Text section.

     

    See screenshot.

     

    Thanks!

     

    Justin

    Are you okay to use the form's source code to embed your form? If yes we can provide you with a work around on this.

    Let us know and we are happy to help you on this.

    Thanks,

    Sidharth

    Yes I am great with that.

    Can you please make it clear which part is "custom" so that I can update the form inside Jotform and then be able to update the source code again.

    Also, just to verify, there is no way to just say [field] x [field] = Number    ??

     

    Thanks!

    No you wont be able to do anything inside jotform. I will download your form's code form jotforma dn implement the changes. You will have to embed this updated code in your website to be able to use it.

    Yes, you wont be able to do the calculation inside jotform platform.

    Thanks,

    Sidharth

    Ok thanks! Are you going to email me or just post the code here?

     

    Can you make sure and highlight the part of the code that is customized?
