    Calculate Field not working for summing up item totals into order total

    Asked by JordanScheibel on December 15, 2013 at 09:20 PM

    I am creating a Community Supported Agriculture weekly order form for my farm. I've created 7 different items and text boxes below each item which successfully calculate the price of each item. For example, asparagus is $3.50 per bunch. If you enter 1 in the asparagus item field, the price field below shows $3.50. However, when I tried to create a text box to sum all of those item price fields (to get an order total), the calculation is always wrong, although I can see nothing wrong with my formula - [{price1}+{price2}+{price3}]. For example, after placing a test order by total should be 19.75, but it shows up as 383.

    Calculation feature currently does not support numbers with decimal places. You may consider creating the lists using our Payment tools such as the Purchase Order or, add a fix pricing to each of the product items.
