    How do I create a table that captures date, description and total and the total is calculated

    Asked by ctregion15 on March 17, 2015 at 01:55 AM

    I am trying to create a form with a table that contains three columns date, description and total. I need up to 10 rows and the bottom row needs to calculate the total of all of the rows.

     

    Any ideas for how to accomplish this?

    I think you can do that using text boxes, then all you need to do is to add our calculation widget.

    Please follow this guide in order to know how to do it:
