    How can I create a tabulated total amount for my form?

    Asked by ahugessen on January 06, 2015 at 02:01 PM


    Any suggestions for this challenge:

    I would like people to be able to add products (with a quantity option) and have their total tabulated.

    I have done this through both the PayPal and purchase order but the issue is it only allows you to enter one per form and I would need one for each category of products. so several on one form.

    I don't think I need an actual "payment" system, just one that tabulates the total for the user as they go through.



    *edit on second thought I don't really need a quantity option. Just a tabulation of the value of the products they have added so at the bottom it could read:

    "your cost is $____ per person

    It is possible to use a form calculation option or a from calculation condition to calculate a custom 'per person' amount based on the form selections.
