    Totals Not calculating properly

    Asked by VickiH on March 16, 2016 at 12:22 AM

    I have a total Distance ( checkbox marked as $40,$80 or,$100) total discount (-15 ax, -15 bx) the total due should be calculated adding $20 but it comes out with x8.00 The math is not working.  I can't figure it out.  Any help is appreciated.

    The calculation might not be working properly because the Calculation widget titled "Total Due" has a condition added to it. The Total Due field already has a calculation, so adding a condition would create a conflict with the calculation. To fix the issue, I would suggest removing the condition for the Discount Options.

    Then simply add the Discount Options field in the calculation of the Total Due field.

    This should fix the issue with the Total Due calculation.
