    Hello,

    You could do the following:

    1. Add <em>1</em> right after each of the checkbox option labels as shown below:

    2. Using this guiide, add the following CSS code to your form to make the hideous italicized numbers dissapear

    em{color:transparent;}

    3. Using the Form Calculation widget, Just add the field into the calculation wizard and save out the changes.Done.

    Here's the demo form created with the steps above - let us know if this helps: http://jotformpro.com/form/40775520855964

    This only works when you don't have any numbers in your options text. I need to count the number of check boxes, but I also have numbers in the text of each option. When I calculation the field it seems to add up all the numbers in each option selected which isn't what I'm wanting to do.

     

    Is there a different way to achieve this?
