    can this program create a complex order form?

    Asked by Debbie  on December 21, 2015 at 04:06 PM

    to further explain ...

    I want to build an order form that will show different selection lists based on the users selection (eg: build your own computer)

    field 1: pick your tower, (this selection will generate the a list of options and not show any other options not associated with the users specific choice).

    this function should also happen for the next list of options generated by the selection from the previous list.

    the form would need to calculate so the user would have a consolidated total for all selections at the end of the form and then a SUBMIT or SEND ORDER button.

    thanks, I'm up and running with my first form.

      Unfortunately I'm having problems with the calculations.  It appears that several of the fields do not calculate correctly.  It's like the default value in the calculation is taking the figure shown in the field description.

    my form is https://form.jotform.com/53548320035247, give it a try and see what I mean.

    select the first item KTM 690 and the default value is $675 which is correct and the values in several of the now visible fields calculate correctly as you go but get to the last item and select the 12V socket and the value jumps by $1224.  To me it looks like it is calculated every number it finds in the line item.  If you select the KTM 625 the price defaults to $625 when it should be $675.  The same thing happens with the KTM 640.

    Help? I'm confused!
