    I'm sorry, but it's not possible to include some of the input fields from the configurable list widget in the calculation. 

    You may consider using a different approach if you wish to get the total of the number inputs. You can use a textbox field, but this also means that you're going to add multiple textboxes in the form so with the date fields. 

    Or, this widget: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/sliders_with_calculated_result. Two of this widget in the form. The labels will be the date and the slider will be the number of hours. Example: https://form.jotform.com/60841191623957

    Thanks. 

    >>if you wish to get the total of the number inputs. You can use a textbox field,

    If you recall, my original goal was to create an input table.   Are you saying its possible to stack text boxes into columns with label and date fields in the same rows? See attached.

    Unfortunately, we do not have such table elements to hold the standard form fields.

    If the table outline is not required, you may try to position multiple fields in the same line. Please see the next guide.

    Alternatively, you can get a form source code to modify it per your requirements.

    Note, that there is no way to upload modified code back to the JotForm. You will need to use modified source code on your web page.
