    Conditional Calculation

    Asked by cordovacouncil on April 02, 2015 at 09:25 AM

    I am trying to create a registration form where the total purchase will be base on selection throughout the form. I have a condition set but the total is what I expected. What am I doing wrong?

    For calculation in your form, the best way to set it up is to use calculation values, rather than updating a field via conditions.  You can do so in the options for each field:

    That will associate a value with each option.  Then you can simply use the field in you calculation:

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
