    I'd like to create a form for sales that will multiply the # of items by the sale price and then add up the purchased items. Thanks,

    Guessing what Marian/OP means I would love to see the same! A general purpose tool or functions to allow simple maths on input fields. Say add the entries in 5 boxes to give a total, or as OP wishes multiply number of items by cost to get a total amount.

    It would be even sweeter if you allowed some basic field conversion so that we could convert yes to a 1 and no to a 0, then total the result to say you said yes in 4 out of 5 cases etc.

    New response receivedThanks for your response. I am trying to make a form for people to sign up for one or more workshops at $50. each. As they check the box by a workshop I'd like to be able to total it . I've just figured out that I can do that with your paypal options although I also need a drop down with dates and the paypal form won't let me add that info in between the check boxes. I've attached a screen shot of the paypal form - I'd like the date choice with the check box. ALSO - I made a form, save it and then added to it and saved it again - but the changes don't show up. Any idea why?? Thanks so much - Marian

    New response receivedHI Here is an issue I am having now again - Asked by marianw on January 18, 2012 HI - I created a form, saved it, embeded it and then went back into Jotform and added some text fields to it. I saved it again, and because I couldn't see the changes I re - embeded it although the code is the same. The new text fields still are not there - I've attached a screen shot of the form.
