    Hello Chris,

    On which form you are currently working? I did check but you do not seems to have any form created yet.

    Unfortunately it is not possible to achieve your requirement with dropdown field. Can you please let us know how to calculate the total $? Please explain the formula how you want to calculate and how you want the users to add data of each round of football matches. We will try to help you achieve it.

    We will wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    Calculations are not available inside widgets such as the Configurable List widget that you are using.

    Calculations are available only for calculating values of regular form fields, such as Number fields, Text Box fields, Matrix fields, etc. You can see the following guide on how to perform calculations on a form:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-perform-calculation-in-the-form

    This means that your manager will not be able to add any number of rows they would like, such as they are currently doing with the Configurable List widget. Instead you will have to create fields for each "row", by using ordinary form fields such as a Matrix field or multiple Number fields, and then your manager will be filling out these fields.

    If you want to use a Matrix field, here is a specific guide about performing calculations on values of a Matrix field:

    If you run into any issues with setting up your calculations, please let us know. Thank you.
