    Performing complex calculations and outputting result

    Asked by AlecTaylor on August 28, 2015 at 11:52 AM

    Hi - I would like to create a form to gather user data, then have a complex set of calculations performed to create a suitable output to the user on the form.

    The calculation would not be of the simple type that could be accommodated with something like the calculator widget. It would require a large spreadsheet to be run, with perhaps VBA macro code behind the spreadsheet.

    Can this be done?

    Alternatively, is it possible for me to directly code a widget\app to perform complex calculations?


    Thanks in advance, Alec.

    Hello Alec,

    Our form calculation is limited to basic calculations, it is not possible to integrate with jotform directly.

    You can however download the form's full source code which will give you all the flexibility you need to write you own custom implementation.

    Please refer to this guide on how to get your form's full source code, do let us know if you need further information
