    I have 2 form calculations and each has 1 or 2 conditions applied to it. They are exactly correct, until i press submit, then they change to what i've entered into the form calculation field (which is not correct). I do not know what to put in the original formula.

    please help me understand how to fix this problem; the problem is that the form calculation values change once Submit is pressed.

    It appears that there is some conflict with calculation conditions on your form.

    I would like to suggest calculate the totals withing widget fields. For example, you can add a Price field which will be populated with conditional price, and everything else calculated with the Form Calculation widget fields.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    THE PROBLEM IS THAT I HAVE NOTHING IN THE FORM CALCULATION FIELDS. COULD YOU PLEASE HELP ME WHAT TO PUT IN HERE. like for the price, what am i supposed to put in there? i can't put $7.5 or $8 because they're different and i don't know how to do that. Frustrating!

    OK.

    I've assigned the values of 5 and 0 to the yes and no. 

    The only thing left to fix is the price form calculation field. I've got the conditions you suggested in there, but I have nothing except '$' in the form calculation field. 

    The only other thing to fix is the decimal problem.

    Thanks and sorry that I am a pain.
