    How can I use numbers as part of my question choices?

    Asked by DeniseTenney on September 11, 2015 at 09:32 AM

    When I made this form, I originally used Pose 1, Pose 2, Pose 3, etc. as the question choices.  I couldn't make it total correctly, so I switched to pose A, pose B, etc.  I want to use pose numbers instead.  Is there a way to do this?

    Since you are having calculation values set for the options on your JotForm, you may have the field names with numbers. If the calculation values are not set, the numbers in the options may be used for calculations. I've tried cloning your JotForm to my account and notice that there is only one calculation value is set for the fields Order Package 1 and Order Package 2.

    It is required to have the same number of calculation values as the options count for checkboxes field. I think this may be resulting in incorrect total on your JotForm. Please correct this on your JotForm and see how it goes.

    Let us know if you need any further assistance in this regard. We will be happy to help.
