    I have checked your form http://www.jotform.us/form/41455293467158 and I noticed this calculation


    It was not about calculation of the value of drop-down field.

    Are you perhaps trying to assign a hidden value to the email address field?

    If you want to have a condition email base on a selection you should do it similar to what was described on this user guide instead.


    It will have condition email like this


    Please clarify what you wanted to do, and we will help you achieve it on the form

    Thank you.
