    The "Price per Lineal Feet" calculation field does not recalculate after a drop down field is changed from its original entry. If I select 6 from "Length" and 5 from "Diameter" a price is calculated. However, if I want to reselect 12 from "Length" and keep 5 as the diameter, it does not recalculate. This is a problem because the price is not accurate.

    I think that is because you have two "Diameter (small end)" fields in the form:

    And each will show up based on the "Length" field selection and empty by default. I think the two are used up in the form so I would not suggest removing the other one.  Instead, I would suggest making the two fields as required. This way, the submitter can't skip it and will require them to select an option before they will be able to submit the form.

    Thanks
