    Thank you for contacting us.

    It can be done pretty easy with us, since there is a Form Calculation widget available for jotforms.

    Please take a look at the following guide:

    How to perform calculation in the form?

    I used the form calculation.  However, it does not seem to work on currency values.  I am asking users to provide expected expenses.  It will total only if decimal places are not used.  Even though I set the field to currency format  the $ or commas do not show.  For example, user has to input

    1000 + 200 = $1200

    Is there a way to have the currency fields show $ and commas and the calculating field include the comma?
