    While reviewing your form I notice that your are trying to add a value to nothing. I am assuming that you are trying to increment the result of the calculation field with the the values in the condition.

    The condition you are creating will not work. I suggest you create hidden text fields and store the values you wish to add here. Once the user made all the proper selection, create another condition where it will read and add all the hidden fields.

    Please let us know if this helps.

    How can I read and add all hidden fields using a conditional statement?

    After reviewing your form again, I think I found a better solution instead of adding hidden fields. I noticed that you are trying to place a value on each selection of the check boxes. In the properties you may add a value to each answer.

    Once you have place a value for each selection, you can just create one big condition adding all the select one fields.

    I would recommend using RADIO FIELDS instead of check boxes, because this will only let user to select one option. The check boxes enable users to select more than one option. This might confuse your users and could give you an incorrect result.
