    im stumped. here is a hypothetical situation.


    i am a professional printer. if a customer sends me 5 files and needs 10 prints of each file at a certain price how can i reflect that accurately in the purchase order totals? right now it seems that purchase orders have no way of being aware of how many files have been uploaded and therefore cant be much help in this area. any suggestions would be helpful!

    To be honest, I'm stumped too!

    You are correct that the form builder currently has no such capability. However, there might be a workaround involving JavaScript. I would need to give this a considerable amount of thought before coming up with a solution. Hopefully, one of my learned colleagues can provide one in the interim.

    i cant bill them online until i can figure this hiccup out and calling each one to ask for payment over the phone is a dumb solution.

    There is currently no way for the built-in purchase order tool to automatically calculate the total price based on the number of uploaded files.

    Only a custom JavaScript solution, as mentioned by Wayne (abajan), can make this possible.

    is there any way that i could base my totals off a selection in a drop down box? say the customer selects a number from a drop down input. if "dropdown" = "100 prints" then "$100" is added to the total? 


    anyone see what im getting at here?

    Can you please open a new thread and share your concern / questions with us? If i am not mistaken, you can use a quantity box in order to do it.

    Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.
