    Hi,

    I'm adding up fields in the form to calculate the total amount. The math works great but I would like to see a dollar sign in front of the result. $50, instead of 50. The calculation widget does not let me add any extra characters. Any ideas???

    Hi,

    Yes, that is true, to add a dollar sign in front of the calculated value all that is required is to add '$' character in front of all the fields in the Form Calculation widget.

    More about it is described in the link posted above: http://www.jotform.com/answers/421282-Add-Dollar-Sign-to-Calculation

    You could also add it through conditions: http://www.jotform.com/help/268-How-to-Insert-Text-or-Mathematical-Caculation-into-a-field-using-a-Condition
