    Good morning,
    Please find attached an excel file with the rating tool we use that
    includes the premiums matrix and the formulas for calculating the price.
    I also attach the proposal form that would be the form we want to build ,
    that contains the questions to be answered that drive to the final price.
    Let me know your thoughts. Best regards.

    Meanwhile, you may try using the Form Calculation and Spreadsheet widgets and see if that works for you.

    Hi Vanessa,

    I have finished the form which is the following:

    I also attach the spread sheet that include the rating matrix in the sheet called Calculations D&O :

    My problem is how to include the calculations based on this rating matrix. I know how to do it in an excel file but not with the widgets.

    There are only two questions that are related to the rating matrix:

    cc.Volumen de facturación consolidado (últimos 12 meses): *



    The first question refers to the turnover of the insured company. The second question is a drop down list where they can choose the limit of the insurance.

    So depending on both answers you can find in the matrix a premium that corresponds with the turnover and the limit you choose.

    Let me know if you can help me integrate the formulas I need for getting the premium from the rating matrix.

    Look forward to your news , best regards.

    I have checked the spreadsheet provided by you and understood that changing the Option from Dropdown field is changing the value in 'PRIMA DE RECIBO'. However, I wasn't sure how the calculation is performed on the Spreadsheet and which of the field is the turnover.

    It would be helpful if you can provide us with an example of a calculation and the fields associated so that we can assist you further. 

    We will wait for your response. Thank you!

    Hi Kiran,

    I have translated the headers and titles of the main fields so you can follow the explanation of the spread sheet.

    The first sheet "RATOR D&O" is the data introduction sheet.

    In row 9 you can find "INSURED LIMITS" ,  different options ,all 3 are a drop down list.

    This list is the same for the 3 options and represents the insured limits options of the product.

    In row 46 you can find "TURNOVER" where you introduce this data (D46)

    In row 49 you can find the Premium calculations for each of the 3 options. D49, F49 and H49

    All this 3 cells show a formula that is in the second sheet " Calculations D&O"

    In "Calculations D&O" you can find the following:

    Premium Schedule : Is a matrix of two entries , Turnover and Limits

    The figures within the matrix are the premiums. 

    Calculations: Contains the data of the RATOR D&O corresponding fields . the formulas are in C26, C27 and C28.

    The spreadsheet:

    Look forward to your news , happy new year and best regards.

    I tried to use an Input Table and assigned calculation values based on your spreadsheet. Unfortunately, since the input table cannot have a default value, then the calculation of the premium cannot be done automatically.


    The only possible way I could think of to calculate the premium, is to use calculation conditions, one for each possible limit and turnover pair.
