    and can I add cells individually, say I just need one cell to make a total for me at the bottom of the table.

    Unfortunately as of right now we do not yet have options to do either of these within the formbuilder. You would have to use the form's source code in conjunction with some programming knowledge to modify it from there to create some custom calculations that would work.

    As for a total box that could be done with a regular textbox and some injected css to adjust it or the source code.

    I would really love this feature.  I often need to create a form that contains a table matrix where some of the cells sum.  (Timesheet, expense report, etc.)  I know this request has been made in the past.  (I have seen posts asksing for this feature for the past several years.)

    For Example

    Table with 10 rows and five colums.
    Columns: Date, Description, Hours, Rate, Total.  Total field multiplies hours by bill rate. 
    Then the last row would be totals for each numerical column. 

    Using the PO payment function does not accomplish the needed goals. 

    Does JotForm ever plan on adding this feature?

    Hi Julie,

    Good day! Please create a separate thread requesting the same so we can forward that to our developers.
