    Form Calculations: How to get a highest value from multiple values?

    Asked by jannyfer.chua on August 05, 2016 at 07:41 PM
    Thank you for your prompt response.
    How do I set a formula to calculate the highest total of the 4 totals and then for it to show related information to that total on the next page?
    Q1= 35
    Q2 = 30
    Q3= 22
    Q4= 18
    So the highest total is Q1 but instead of showing the actual formula to the user,
    It shows information related to that result on the Next Page:

    Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

    This is possible to use a max function to get the highest value.

    What I am trying to do is create a quiz of 28 questions, of which every 7 questions targets 1 of the 4 elements.
    Based on the user’s answer, there will only be 1 element with the highest score.
    When that element is determined, they get their results (image & a description about their results) on the next page.
    So the user will only see the 28 questions and the image & result description.
    For example:
    Element Score
    1 (q1-7) 35
    2 (q8-14) 30
    3 (q15-21) 22
    4 (q21-28) 18
    1. A formula calculates the highest score total – element 1 (do I have to create a 5th Form calculation widget for this?)
    2. Displays only the image and textbody linked to element 1 on the second page

    Unfortunately your screenshot did not appear. Please visit this link and post your image here instead: https://www.jotform.com/answers/899851

    If you need to have to find the highest score selected, and its value is not related or dependent to the value of those that are added, you will need to have a separate calculation field for it.

    We'll look forward to your update on this matter.
