    Do you mean to have the value of total from payment tool to calculate with something else? Could you please explain a little more about your requirement? 

    We will wait for your response.

    By the way, I see that you are collecting creditcard information normally which is not secure and is not allowed through JotForm. This is considered as phishing activity and leads to suspension of your account. Please refer to our terms of usage for more information on phishing. We request you to remove these fields immediately from your JotForm or integrate one of our payment tools to collect your payments.

    Let us know if you have any questions in this regard.

    Thank you!!

    Wow.  Thanks for the information on Phishing.  Is it possible to call you or you call me?

     

    About the non-integrated payment tool, I don't recall downloading anything special like you indicated.  Did you see the payment construct in the form I indicated?  Is that what I did and I just am not remembering?  What I wanted to do was use a calculated field to show the sum of the value of the non-integrated payment construct to another number ($) field.   I  have considered just putting the "other $ field" into the payment construct, but have non-technical reasons to prefer not to.  If I can't do the calculation, I will put the added $ field into the payment construct, but again, that is not my preference because the items in the payment construct are dissimilar to the item in the added $ number field.  

    I tried to get the field id for the payment construct in order to reference it in building the formula in the  calculation field.  I go to the properties of the payment construct and see no id, nor is the "question" label listed in the choice of fields to use in the calculation.   Hence my question.

    Hi DanBlum,

    To confirm, you would like to pass information from your form into the payment integration tool?

    If that is the case, you can view this guide on how to get your calculations into your payment integration: http://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field 

    You do have a non-integrated payment tool in your form, it can be seen in the screenshot below

    I hope this helps, please inform us if you need further assistance.

    You have interpreted my question just the opposite.  I want to pass the total from the the non-integrated payment tool  (call it "A") to a separate calculated field in the form (call it "B") .  In the calculated field (B), I will add the value from another field (call it "C") to A.    

    I think you are merely telling me what you know how to do...but not what I am asking. Read carefully:

    I tried to do the calculation that I describe above, but in the wizard that assists with the entering the calculation, field A (the non-integrated payment total) is not listed in the choice of fields.  Further, when I separately look at the properties of "A", there is no field identifier listed.  I thought I might use this identifier to enter it in the calculation (Field B's formula) myself since it was not in the list of fields. 

    Does this imply that there is a limitation that the total from a non-integrated payment field is not available for reference in a separate calculated field?

    Hi Dan,

    I do apologize for misunderstand your request.

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to pull the value from the payment tool to be calculated into another field. It is only possible to do a calculation outside of the tool and then have the information passed on.

    If you are looking to add an additional charge to the total of the products selected, you can create a check box field outside of the payment tool and pull your calculations from that field.

     

    As you have quantity included, we would have to do a work around to achieve the same outcome.

    I have created a sample form to show you how the work around would work in your form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43394528853970 

    Please inform us if this is a suitable alternative for you.

    That would work.  Can you tell me what he constructs you used ...or give me access to the edit of that form?

     

    Thanks.

    Ok.  Thanks.  I still have a question about the sample form you created.  (By the way...thanks very much for doing that!)  In the Member Day hidden field (and the 3 others like it), you use conditions to insert from Member Individual Day and Member Individual Day Quantity.  I don't see where the multiply is indicated to multiply these two together.  They appear to me to be just concatenated beside each other. I am missing some concept apparently. Yet in the Purchase Total field you just add this value to the  other similar fields.  Where does multiply price times quantity get specified???

    I believe that you are referring to the following similar hidden fields.

    As we see on this window, the field names are apprearing to be concatenated. But, when you click on that condition to edit or view, you can see the actual calculation being done in the backend.

    Hope this answers your question. If you are referring to something else, please let us know. We will be happy to look into this issue further.

    Thank you!!
