    How to add the total amount values which can be captured on the excel spreadsheet ?

    Asked by Lossuenos on July 08, 2016 at 02:59 AM

    Hi, we tried the exporting the spreadsheet file, but we have to do the manual calculations on the total value each time. is there a function where we can add "total values amount" on the exported spreadsheet on each column ?


    can someone please advise? 

    example :

    total no of participants = values

    Total payable amount = values

    total balance outstanding = values

    total males = values

    total females = values


    many thanks, Lily

    You will need to have a calculation field in your form to compute for the total values of your form. You can just hide the field so user will not be able to see the field. You can check this article for more information: How to Perform Calculation in the Form. Once you have this field, it will also be included on the spreadsheet when you download the submission.


    Do let us know if you need further assistance.

    It's not possible, unfortunately. You'd like to get the total of all the submissions which is stored in one column. As suggested by colleague Boris, you'll need to do it manually. That should take you a minute. 

    Here's a guide from MS Office:
