    When I fill the form out and press Submit button preview mode,

    it just takes me to "Thank You" page.

    The last field showing on the form is the paypal tool.

    I see this is a followup to your other 2 threads here and here which had no explanation. In the future we ask that you please do not open up multiple threads about the same issue. 

    Regarding your problem at hand I think this is happening because it's not configured correctly since the price for your AUD donation field isn't being carried over to it. Instead you are only seeing your resolution so your form calculation is incorrect.

    Are you trying to multiply the Photo Resolution times the initial price? Or? I think this needs to be simplified more, but just looking at what you have now is not really enough to go on. We need to understand the math you are intending to use since your current calculation seems to be doing the exact opposite. I will try to see if I can figure out a way to get this to work using your current setup.

    Turns out we found the issue and double-checked it just to be sure.  It's the " $ " (dollar-sign) symbol which is breaking your calculation. The rest of your calculation is fine. It seems that our form calculation widget doesn't want to work with that even though I would think that it should. I've sent this over to our developers to get this problem fixed.

    Removed Dollar Sign:


    Now it's working:

    PS: Sorry for creating the 2 threads here and here.

          I did it to upload 3 screen shot images. As the forum editor did not allow

    me to upload multiple files.
