    OK I now have all my logic/conditions working OK but have lost the ability to cost the Dinners and such.  How do I make a Y/N box return either a '1' or a '0' as in

    Attending Dinner on Sat 'Y/N' * Dinner Rate * Number of Delegates =

     

    Just noticed within that there is a field headed: Calculation Values - These Values will be used in calculations but not shown on your form. How is this used seems it might be what I'm looking for?

    Hi,

    I checked your form https://www.jotform.com/40771256620956 and the very first thing I noticed when I checked the fields involved in the condition logic as you had pointed out in your schreenshot -- was this

    (click image to enlarge)

     

    There are additional html em tags in radio option value. Was this tags intentionally added? If it was, can you tell us what is the purpose?

    I believe because of those tags, the condition logic is not able to function properly because it could be reading a different value.

    I made a test form using a clone of your form, and I corrected the radio option value(removing the tags)  -- just for the radio option "Are you all staying in the Dunblane Hydro?"

    And set the condition similar to the previous setup you have. I test the form and the condition was properly triggered. 

    Test form : http://www.jotformpro.com/form/41202284978963

    Please check this on your form. Correct the radio option values and adjust the conditions so that it can be properly read.

    Inform us if you need further assistance on this.

    Thanks!

    Many thanks all makes sense, you'll need to ask Titus why we did it that way. I have done all the changes (I think) but I still can't get the Dinners Section to hide - any chance you could advise me why that is - the coditions seem to make sense to me.

    Hi,

    I was able to spot the conflicting condition on the new form https://www.jotform.com/form/41201918978966 

    This one

    (click image to enlarge)

     

    The correct condition should be like this

     

    Here is the test form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/41203923802950 

    Test the "Are you all staying in the Dunblane Hydro? " radio option. When select YES it should hide Dinner Bookings.

     

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks!
