    Is it possible to integrate a wordcount with a spreadsheet calculation?

    Asked by cfd007 on February 19, 2014 at 06:24 PM

    I need to set up a form that counts words from a variety of text files such as pdf, doc, docx, rtf etc.

    I also need this form to perform a calculation based on the word count combined with a number from a spread-sheet cell.

    Hopefully jotform can do this!

    JotForm philosophy is to keep things simple, what you are trying to accomplish can be done if you hire a programmer to do the server side programming in your downloaded source code to count the words.  You can perform calcalations on your form, but it is only with numeric entries.
