    I am trying to do Calculation to "Number of Guests Ice Breaker" but cannot seem to make it work.

    Should I take out what I have and enter a radio button instead.

    I would like it to calculate like the direct pay option at the bottom of the page, but so sorry I cannot seem to get it correct.

    About half of the class will send a check or money order.  So if I could get it to show exactly the same as the debit card calculation at the bottom of the page, so they could print for their records, I think it would be less confusing for all.

    I would just change it to show "Check/Money Order".  Then they could actual put in the COUPON code and it would be so easy for them.

    I am sure this is much easy than I am making it ....  sorry.

    1) First assign a calculation value to each option in your drop down field labeled as "Number of Guests Ice Breaker": https://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value 

    2) Then, add a Form Calculation widget to obtain the value:

    3) And if you want to assign a value to each option for the rest of the fields called:

    Number of Guests Dinner

    Number of Guests Brunch

    Number of Guests NCHS Tour(no values yet)

    Simply repeat step 1, and include them in the calculation field: https://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-Perform-Calculation-in-the-Form

    On step 1 when I go to edit properties I get this instead of the DROP DOWN edit box you show.

    I can not figure out what I am doing wrong?
