    The instructions state the following:
    Note: Choosing a different input type for the table, like a text box or number text box, if you want your respondents to define values for each cell, will not require you to set calculation values.
    If this is the case, what if I want to use the dropdown box, how do I give each of the dropdown box answers a different value? For example I want the following dropdown values to equal the corresponding value.
    Not at All - 0
    A Little Bit - 1
    Moderately - 2
    Quite a Bit - 3
    Extremely - 4

    Hello Michael,

    Thank you for reaching out to Jotform Support. Sadly, it's not possible to assign values to the dropdown values from the Input table. What I can do now is to forward this to our developers as a feature request.

    For now, you can copy the selected value to another field, and then, using conditional logic add the values to the final fields. Here's a sample form created by my colleague that displays our suggestion.
