    I am asking a question.  How much money did you save?  Here is the form:http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50994633003958

     

    Pay date doesn't matter.  I want to add up how much is being saved by ALL submissions and display the results like a running total in a thank you email or embed on a web page.

    Unfortunately, I don't think that would be possible to accomplish using only the form builder.

    However, you could use the API to accomplish this.
    Basically, you could retrieve all the submissions you've received in your form and then sum up the value that was selected in the "Amount Saved" field to display the total result in a web page.

    You would need to hire a programmer if you don't have any knowledge about web programming. Or if you're willing to try to do this by yourself, I suggest you to check the links below:
