    After performing some tests with the calculation field. I do see that the calculation fields do not allow me to add fields with decimal points. In which case I will go ahead and submit a ticket to the development team for further review.

    I have created an example form that showcases the problem: http://form.jotform.co/form/33365092617860

    Adding 7+8.5+2.5 incorrectly results in 117 as if you have calculated 7 + 85 + 25

    Once we do have any updates from the development team in regards to this issue we will let you know through this thread. Thank you.
